xbase-clients 4.3.0-pre1v4: incorrect permissions set on /usr/X11R6/bin

I did a fresh install of Debian using the new debian-installer. I only installed the base packages. I then dist-upgraded to unstable. I installed xfree86 4.3.0-pre1v4 with no previous version of x installed. I also installed KDE from unstable.

I was unable to login as a normal user using KDM.  So, I tried

~$ startx
-bash: startx: command not found

After some searching, I finally checked the permissions on /usr/X11R6/bin and found:

~# ls -l /usr/X11R6
total 16
drwx------    2 root     root         4096 Nov 11 10:23 bin
drwxr-xr-x    3 root     root         4096 Nov 11 09:14 include
drwxr-xr-x    4 root     root         4096 Nov 11 09:17 include
drwxr-xr-x    6 root     root         4096 Nov 11 09:17 include

doing a "chmod +rx /usr/X11R6/bin" fixed everything for me. I suggest checking what permissions the experimental xbase-clients sets on this directory.
