I was adding users recently, using pdbedit from samba as well, and setting 
the permissions of their home directories.

I tried to login and was getting login: /bin/ksh permission denied

It took me a while (root login from console worked) but I saw the 


(I may have left some out - this fs from membory - but the result was that 
user logins wouldn't work)

Were all set with perms 700. I added the x bit for users and it worked.

My question is: what would have done something like that? I certainly 
didn't manually type the permissions of all the binary directories by hand, 
and I was oinly modifying users home directories.

Is there some kind of automatic procedure for this (ie. system function)? 
Or should I be worried about possible intrusions? This just "happened"
