Well, if it can't execute the file then you have to make it so that the
file is executable, which you did.  The default installation puts things in
group daemon (or at least recommends that you do that), which is _supposed_
to be the same group that sendmail is in, so world execute permission is
not required.  If you put it in a different group, you will have this
problem.

We should probably change the default permissions on $homedir to 751, but
we were trying to be as security conscious as possible.
