Are you suggesting that the file may have been yanked away after being moved from temp file, but before it got the permissions set correctly?  If so, I would think that the file would have been transferred properly, but just (possibly) end up with wrong permissions.  I don't think that is the case.... it seems these files disappeared (or never made it).  Do you know what the initial permissions would have been set to?
