Hi All--
This is not precisely about Python, but it does affect my *usage* of
Python on redhat 6.1.

Why don't #! scripts seem to work anymore?  #!/usr/bin/python and
#!/usr/bin/perl scripts don't work.  Error is

bash:  ./h2n:  No such file or directory

but "perl h2n" gives:

Must specify one -d and at least one -n.
I give up ... sorry.

Which is the correct behaviour.

h2n starts with
blah ....

There are no funny things going on with line-endings, no control
characters, no extra spaces.

This all works just fine on redhats 5.2 and 6.0, but it fails
consistently with 6.1.
