[SLUG] Re: Can't exec binary file (was Stupid Q re: backspace key!)

1. not executable (or something) (check with ls -l)

2. missing library (check with ldd)

3. its actually some other program that xmodmap is trying to run, and
the error message just looks like its xmodmap itself (check with strace)

4. ld.so is screwed up somehow (can't test directly, but you'll notice
all sorts of other things dying too)
