Yes.  For example, it won't work on the following files on my Solaris 8 box:

crwx-w----   1 charlton tty       24,  4 Jan 21 11:31 
srwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           0 Oct  4 12:15 /tmp/.X11-unix/X0

It's possible, yes.  I've seen people put /tmp in their PATH.
It's not wise, but they do it.

Can't we get DJGPP fixed?  It seems to be the odd man out here.
