Here is what I am trying to execute:

        $pass_string = "super cadduser -f \"".$full_name."\" -u
\"".$Username."\" -p \"".$Password."\" -q \"".$Quota."\" -x -d
        exec($pass_string, $ary_result);
        echo "Result: ";
#        var_dump($ary_result);
        return $ary_result;

For some reason it will only continue execution past the 'exec' call rarely.
Most of the time the script just stops after the exec call (the echo and
below is not executed).  When it does go beyond the 'exec' call the var_dump
(that I use for testing only. will be gone when working) does show as an

I have the max_execution_time set to 180 so I know the script isn't timeing
out.  Any ideas?  I have never run into this problem before.
