When I use /usr/bin/test, well, [ -x filename ] it always returns true.

Does it only happen when you're root?

See: TAKE - fix root access() and non-executables

My searches missed this :)

For the record (and search engines) it was the autofs init.d script that was failing silently and thought my file maps were program maps.

Hmm, seems that this is a fairly easy-to-exercise bug in the RH7.3 XFS kernel.

I'll see what Eric Sandeen did and see if it applies to the src shipped with the RH iso so it can be patched.
