Java classes can be executed directly via Linux's binfmt_misc support,
so I would say this is a bug in lintian.  The gifs, however, should have
the execute bit removed before shipping.  The larger problem this error
usually points to is that the packager hasn't reviewed the file
locations and permissions in the binary package, to ensure that they all
comply with policy.
