I can't find any code that meaningfully stores that info in the Unix
code.  The returned mode is always 'u=rw,g=rw,o=rw' for every case
that I can trace.

A test on the v1.11.1p1 server here reset the executable bit on the
file that I tried it on.  It's possible yours is compiled with the
preserve permissions stuff on (most of that is ripped out of cvsnt
because it doesn't work properly).
