[LDM #ADA-874007]: This is driving me nuts!

Just to log what I told Tom yesterday, pqact(1)'s EXEC action uses the 
execvp(2) system-call to execute the program. This function is supposed to use 
the PATH environment variable to locate the program if the
program's pathname doesn't contain a slash. It doesn't seem to be behaving that 
way and I have no idea why.
