Editing a remote file results in ownership change

After editing a remote file cyberduck changes the owner to the user under whom it is logged in. This issue has been reported before in google groups and David Kocher said it is a server problem not cyberduck.!topic/cyberduck/vB-9tLibBd0

But I think it is a cyberduck problem. I tried 4 different SFTP clients (FileZilla, WinSCP, Sublime Text and Notepad++ FTP plugins ) and none of them changed the file ownership.

I was editing a CSS file and I was surprised to see the website break because the file is not served by the web server any more as its ownership changed to root|root.
