Unfortunately the problem applies to all directories, but for example in /usr
there are just a few files with wrong permissions because usually the problem
applies to config files created at boot time. I tried to figure out which
device files do not belong to an RPM and could also have wrong permissions. I
guess this could be a difficult task because mode 644 is not always the
solution there.

I recall there being some tools out there to backup/restore UNIX permissions. If someone could backup the permissions on a default Linux install and share the tool/data on the list we could apply it to 1.0.1 systems. The only tool I came up with was 'licen' (check sourceforge.net). I thought there was a perl script someone published once to do this too but didn't find it.
