Definitely not mounted with short file names, and there aren't any
non-ASCIIs in the file names; in both cases I imagine that the file
wouldn't run at all. In this case, however, the file does run, and
open a socket, it just can't seem to receive connections on it. I have
tried running the file as su, with no success.

The FAT dirs are mounted with the following options:
defaults,user,umask=000 . I'm not sure what you mean by the execute
bit, but all files do have execute permission. Here's the output of an
ls -l on the file I'm talking about:

-rwxrwxrwx  1 root root 1073 2005-07-15 21:40

Any other ideas?
