/home/foo/.forward: Group writable directory
I don't think it should be necessary to make the home directories
drwxr-xr-x to make this work. Permission settings of 755 are illogical
given RedHat's desire for single-user groups as the default.

to ship sendmail with this extra security check, so I'll not change anything
for the default setup.
