Follow-up Comment #9, patch #4446 (project cvs):

While I was trying to add some tests for --execute,
I discovered that the user's umask created strange results.
With umask 022 I had no issues but when my umask was 077
--execute changed the file's permissions
from -r--r--r-- to -r-xr--r--
A subsequent --execute would change the permissions to -r--------
The user's umask shouldn't matter to what happens on the server.
It's good enough (in fact it's great) that the patch applies the execute bit
wherever the file's owner/group/other has the read bit set.

Revised previous patch (don\'t apply the umask anymore)
