Yeah thats all good, I did seem to narrow this down a little bit.. In
the script there is a line that looks like this
thats a dot space and then the path to sendmail.
Now that gets the ELF error... I can recreate it with another binary... example
smeagol:~# . ls
-su: ELF: command not found
Same error.. so the .<space>command seems to die..
