I can definitely reproduce the bug starting from "emacs -q
-no-site-file".  The problem seems to be confined to one machine,
though (when I tried the term command while Emacs was running on
a different host, ls and everything else worked normally), so I'm
not sure it is an Emacs bug.

I suppose that the problem with that machine has to do with to do with
the environment, but I have not being able to test this.  This is
because when I start from "emacs -q -nw -no-site-file" and try "M-x
term" with "/usr/bin/env -i /bin/bash --noprofile --norc" I get:



..: [: too many arguments
..: /usr/bin/env -i /bin/bash --noprofile --norc: No such file or directory
..: exec: /usr/bin/env -i /bin/bash --noprofile --norc: cannot execute: No such 
file or directory

Process terminal exited abnormally with code 126



I'm not sure which files do not exist ("No such file or directory"),
since the only files mentioned definitely exist:

$ /bin/ls -l /bin/bash /usr/bin/env
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root       511400 Apr  8  2002 /bin/bash
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        10332 Jul 26  2001 /usr/bin/env



Similarly, when I start from "env -i emacs -q -nw -no-site-file" and
try "M-x term" with "/bin/bash --noprofile --norc" I get:


I get similar results if I start from

..: [: too many arguments
..: /bin/bash --noprofile --norc: No such file or directory
..: exec: /bin/bash --noprofile --norc: cannot execute: No such file or 
directory

Process terminal exited abnormally with code 126





I this point I don't know what to do.  I can report this as an Emacs
bug, but I really don't think I have isolated the problem to Emacs.
