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
path (. /cygdrive/d/Home/bin /usr/local/emacs/bin /usr/local/bin

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:
