Can't find program in my path

I can't find a particular application in my path.  It used to work,
but I haven't run this application since the last couple of Cygwin

# set

perlapp is clearly in that directory.  I tried some other "which"
commands with files further into the path and they were found.

I even did a "chmod og+rwx perlapp.exe" and nothing changed.

Running latest of everything:

CYGWIN_NT-6.1-WOW64 JJR 1.7.11(0.260/5/3) 2012-02-24 14:05 i686 Cygwin
