The following files are executable and I think they do not need to be.
Please find attached an xt test that lists such misplaced executables.

[SIGNED-OFF] 7391: Bug 7476 – Remove executable bit from files that probably should not be executed
Created attachment 7442 [details] [review]
Tested. Works as advertised. Amended patch to correct copy-and-paste comments.
patch pushed, but my suggestion would be to also add
'!' -name '*.*~' \
'!' -name '*.old' \
'!' -name '*.bak' \
to the list of excluded files for xt/find-misplaced-executables
Do you think it could be a good idea ?
There have been no further reports of problems so I am marking this bug resolved.
