Thanks for the suggestion. Here's a log snippet that may make this issue 
more clear:

moder8 at telecom:~/bin$ ls -lh /home/moder8/bin/entities
-rwxrwxr-x 1 moder8 telecom 8.8K Jan 27  2012 /home/moder8/bin/entities

moder8 at telecom:~/bin$ ls -lh 
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root root 3.1K Jul 28 11:12 

moder8 at telecom:~/bin$ strace ./entities 
execve("./entities", ["./entities", 
"/var/www/html/archives/back.issu"...], [/* 22 vars */]) = -1 ENOENT (No 
such file or directory)
write(2, "strace: exec: No such file or di"..., 40strace: exec: No such 
file or directory
) = 40
exit_group(1)                           = ?
+++ exited with 1 +++
moder8 at telecom:~/bin$

As you can see, the file "entities" shows up in an "ls" listing, but not 
when I try to run it by itself or with strace.

Thanks for your help!
