The problem with this is that ash incorrectly reads (or read) the -x. It
behaves like a -f and not the intended "if it exists and is executable". It
responds true for ANY file in /usr/bin, or other directories. Seems to catch
the x bit from the directory and stop looking. This may be my bug report, I
filed one similar against ash itself. I believe it has been fixed in ash and
can safely be closed.
