 That check catches a lot more problems than it causes (even though it
 can be annoying) so in the absence of other ideas I'd rather keep it.
 It shouldn't be fatal, but genuine exec errors should be.
 (also, may I edit the original submission to refer to != instead
 of :=? that was confusing at first.)
