Shell Script Woes

I have just updated to the new version of slackware and I have noticed some weird things with my shell scripts and cgi programs. Some will execute from the web server but the
rest just crash.

From the command line I can type:
hummer:/web/cgi-bin# lbn.pl
bash: lbn.pl: command not found

and then type:
hummer:/web/cgi-bin# perl lbn.pl
and the progarm executes just fine. I have been looking at
the #! directives and they refer to the right place (they
work when the apache web server calls it). There are plain
bash scripts that have the same problem (they have no #!)

Any one have any ideas?

Is "." in your path?
If not, either add it there, or type
hummer:/web/cgi-bin# ./lbn.pl
