It seems impossible. In Debian Lenny/Thunar 0.9.0 there are no GUI
options for changing execute perms. I didn't found properties for
changing that. IMHO that's a security feature, to prevent
misconfiguration of perms.

Why you don't wanna use "chmod" (in terminal)? With "chmod" and other
GNU tools is batch mode available :-)
