This tends to happen when you have multiple tag sets (either multiple
id3 tags, or id3 and ape tags) in the file.

This happens because rhythmbox doesn't edit tags in place, it creates
a new copy of the file. The new file is owned by the user who creates
it and the permissions are restricted by that user's umask.

It's no one's fault, that's just how it works.
