in thread Executable bit sloppiness in modules

It has nothing to do with line endings. Tar archives from Windows tend to have mode 777 for all filesbecause Windows does not have standard mode bits and the archive program can't know if files are executable or not.

This also happens when Windows disks are mounted on Unix. Every file is usually has mode 777 for the same reason.

    Yes I know it has nothing to do with lineendings, but I was using lineendings as a "clue", as to which OS the modules were written on.
