I tend to use debuild, which probably makes it executable first. I'll
see if I can fix up the bits on the copy in CVS.

Not sure, but I guess hoard simply doesn't parse the file right. As far
as I remember, hoard reads the file and tries to split it out into an
argv[] like format itself, so it doesn't notice the escaped spaces. But
you could recursively hoard the parent directory if it doesn't have
spaces in the name,

    a .mozilla/default/.../Mail 500:d+

(the :d+ tells hoard to grab all descendants, i.e. recursively fetch
everything under that directory).
