*bang* That was the sound of Dan's hammer hitting Colin's nail on the head.

After applying the patch, I simply do the chmod as you suggest and all
seems well :) Certainly things get past this. I still have issues with
dmx but I don't htink it's related to this specifically so I wont go
into detail.

I'd still suggest a cleanup of the CVS repo to merge the missing
upstream files properly all the same.

Thanks to Stefan and Dan both for the responses.
