My guess is that what's happening is that the log file is being created with
permissions determined by the umask, and then chmodded. So, when you do the
chmod on file creation with incron, that works, but then immediately after
the application sets it back.

Also, I need to add that seeing the files changed to world-writable pains me
as a sysadmin. Is that really necessary?

yum install incrond?
