I have, and the issue can still persist.  It's very rare, and the svn
folks are aware of it (see their documentation).  In general setting
of execution bits across OSes is, well, fragile, and they know it (as
does Java, Red5, etc.).  Running "sh your script" is the standard way
of working around it (which is what the patch did)

Still, I understand the decision not to incorporate the patch.  Our
FFMPEG 'incarceration' process patches FFMPEG to work around the
failure, so it doesn't impact us anymore.
