Permissions in gnome-games


When gnome-games installs the executables to disk the permissions are
---x--s--x with user:group root:games.

I can see why the group is 'games' and the suid bit is set (saving of
high scores), but why does world only have execute access?  Was there a
good reason for this?

It makes debugging a PITA, as gdb cannot open the executable.. :(
