Fix permissions of temporary RTeX files (which are group and world-readable)

We use RTeX for PDF exports.
While converting LaTeX to PDF, RTeX opens a temporary file which has problematic permissions: Both group and world can read those files.

Although the temp files should go away they sometimes live longer than one would expect.
We patched RTeX to fix this (and have more secure permissions). Place the code below into config/initializers/rtex.rb

By refactoring problematic code and creating automated tests, makandra can vastly improve the maintainability of your Rails application.
