dangerous permissions on /sbin and /usr/sbin

Apologies for the self-reply - but an interesting side-note ... doing a
chmod o-x on /sbin and /usr/sbin broke gnome-terminal's ability to
connect to the X server, despite all other X apps still being able to.
Surely it's Not A Good Thing (tm) that a user terminal depends on a
/sbin-level program?
