Permissions Too Restrictive on scummvm Binary

Description

Platform: Mac OS X
Version: ScummVM 0.10.0 (Jun 17 2007 18:01:36)

$ ls -l /Volumes/ScummVM\ 0.10.0/ScummVM.app/Contents/MacOS/scummvm
-rwx------ 1 admin staff 12517140 Jun 18 2007 /Volumes/ScummVM 0.10.0/ScummVM.app/Contents/MacOS/scummvm

(The above permissions are carried over when ScummVM is copied into /Applications)

The permissions on the 0.10.0 release for OSX allow only the user that installed the app to run it. Other users see a big "prohibited" sign on the ScummVM icon and get the following error message when trying to execute the app:
You cannot open the application "ScummVM" because it is not supported on this system.

Fix: change the permissions on scummvm from 700 to 755. Note: Finder seems to cache the broken status of ScummVM.app even after the chmod. Log out and re-log in.

Already fixed in the build scripts, 0.11 won't have the problem.
