Oh, but to answer your question: yes, I at least have had
this problem with bash before. The problem is that by
default -- and unintuitively, I think -- bash doesn't look
in the current directory for executable commands. There's
probably a good reason for it, but it differs from, for
instance, the MS-DOS shell's behavior.
