I mentioned in another reply, but since it's a really useful and barely
documented feature I'll mention it again. 

Rpm's --setperms option fixes this easily. For example:

[root satsuki root]# ls -l /bin/bash
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 599860 Dec  9 13:09 /bin/bash
[root satsuki root]# chmod o-x /bin/bash
[root satsuki root]# ls -l /bin/bash
-rwxr-xr--  1 root root 599860 Dec  9 13:09 /bin/bash
[root satsuki root]# rpm --setperms bash
[root satsuki root]# ls -l /bin/bash
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 599860 Dec  9 13:09 /bin/bash

The --setugids option does the same thing with botched ownership.

Definitely no need to reinstall. =;)
