Why does this cause a problem - surely update-menus only needs read
permission on the files - any other permissions are just "extra".

I aggree the permissions shouldn't be there, and that a bug report should
be filed against fvwm95, but I've been bitten by the same "feature" :-(

NB: This "feature" was still present in menu 1.5-2.
