thank you, will try this.
But does that mean that my previous "chmod" does not stick?

I noticed in the macOS file preview that the SHELL stuff contains something like this:
/System/Library/Frameworks/Foundation.framework/Versions/C/Foundation      X           
Does that mean that this depends on the CARBON Framework, which will be obsolete 
in (one of) the next macOS version, or maybe will get removed completely, right?
