Permissions are 777, /usr/bin/perl permissions are 755, test.pl was 
created in linux.

I do have a further development. I decided to test something else, so I 
created a file test.sh:

[marshallj@datasrv bin]$ cat test.sh
echo test
[marshallj@datasrv bin]$ ls -l test.sh
-rwxr-x---   1 marshall marshall       20 Sep 27 03:21 test.sh
[marshallj@datasrv bin]$ ./test.sh
bash: ./test.sh: Permission denied
[marshallj@datasrv bin]$ sh test.sh

It almost seems as if my shell isn't using the first line to determine 
what to use to execute the file. Now this is weird! Any thoughts?
