I apologize for the confusion.  I did not do a very controlled
experiment.  I started playing with a Rexx exec that just said "Hello
World."  I started playing with the permissions first, but the script
was still failing from the browser's perspective.  I failed to check the
error log.  I don't know whether the BPXW0000I went away after I fixed
the permissions or not.  The browser was failing because my "Hello
World" script wasn't returning an appropriate http header.  When I
replaced my script with the script that you sent me, it worked.  By that
time I had already changed PATH.  So, I do not know that changing PATH
is required.  I would make sure the permissions are correct first.

Yep, OW42323 was opened for me.
