 Replying to [comment:1 mcs]:
 > Kathy and I were able to reproduce this bug. As you point out, it should
 be fine to allow rx permission to "other." Doing something like:
 >   chmod -R o+rX TorBrowser.app
 > during our packaging should fix this problem.

 I am fine taking a fix for the next alpha (alpha because I'd like to test
