So simple, yet so crippling.
I can confirm that my install went sideways and installed as -rwx--x--x.
I can only guess that some process is running that blocks the correct
permissions from being set, and this process has been sent a kill signal
earlier which takes a variable amount of time to execute. I note ppop
is the only obvious affected thing, ppad always gets set correctly.
When I have a chance to take the server this is installed on down, I
will hook PPR back up again, and vanquish the godawful CUPS crap running
Long live PPR, little hiccups be darned!
