This is because the lookup of the executable is done using:

if {![file exists ${executable}]}
And the executing is done using:

spawn -noecho "*_./_*$executable" ${params}

Please make the usage of $executable consistent and document how host_execute should be called.

The code you are complaining about was fixed in commit 89f58b27832f8fc7b443988d02e56cfaba12eb5a as part of support for regression testing for bug#42399 and documentation for host_execute was added in the node "Running unit tests" in commit aa173cea24b94d3f714f07bbbfda85740e8e77db. These will be in 1.6.3.

Closing report as already fixed; not in current master.
