However, under NetBSD the temporary PATH appears not not to be used
in locating the executable (second script), with the result that
the initial script keeps on re-finding itself, and the system
eventually runs out of file descriptors.
- `exec' should not cause a file descriptor leak.
- the revised $PATH should be used to find the second `script'
command (what you reported).
