A simple 'echo $PATH' would be better here.

Please note that ActiveState Perl is not really supported here, as
cygwin has its own perl.

You mean 'which plc' or 'which perlfb' work as expected?

Out of curiosity, what does 'getfacl /path/to/perlapp' shows?
Do the other executables in the same directory have the same
permissions (both DAC and ACL)?
Does 'hash perlapp' solve the issue?
