yes yes yes yes to all... thanks for the tip about the rehash and 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?
