csh  behaviour though.

Sorry, I missed the part about logging out and back in before. In that
case, this is a strange issue.

Have you varified that the executables exist and are executable when you
try them? Are you sure that you've typed them correctly? Have you tried
entering the entire paths of the executables? Are any of the executables
scripts with initial shebang (#!) lines, and, if so, do the targets of
the lines exist?
