Possibly they have the executable permission in the upstream source
tarball? This is a common symptom of files from MS Windows systems.

Solution: convince upstream to build the tarball better, and/or re-pack
it to fix the permissions.

egg-info executable files

setuptools seems to want to make these files executable for some reason,
however it doesn't normally do so, and I don't see any reason why it
should do so for this project.
