Bug Description

Under Debian/unstable, log files created by wicd 1.7.4+tb2-4 have wrong permissions and a possibly wrong group:

-rw-rw-rw- 1 root root 192715 2017-08-09 12:01:35 wicd.log
-rw-r----- 1 root adm 487256 2017-08-01 21:19:32 wicd.log.1
-rw-r----- 1 root adm 362245 2017-07-27 14:31:22 wicd.log.2
-rw-r----- 1 root adm 383022 2017-07-19 22:07:07 wicd.log.3

In particular, any user of the machine can write to the log file and fill the partition.
