Hi Frank,

   thanks a lot for looking into it. Yes one server is an older =20
FreeBSD 6.1, the other 7.0 so they certainly aren't identical servers. =20
But they do have same version of apache (2.2.9) and same version of =20
the perl script, and as far as I can tell same config for default PATH =20
etc. I had a look and there doesnt appear to be anything setting the =20
path in the apache conifg, perhaps it could be a compiled in default =20
path?!
I'll ask the apache experts and see if they can help,

thanks again, Andy.
