Just after pressing the send button I noticed the strange matter that the
error message in fact states the command name with it argument as the file
name. I then looked at the parsecontrol-script and saw the following:

SM="${PATHBIN}/sm -q"

I'm pretty sure that causes the problem, because since the entire command is
enclosed in quotes my OpenBSD shell might see it as the file name. I then
changed the above line to the following:


and replaced every further occurence of ${SM} in the script to ${SM} ${SMARGS}
(I think just removing the quotes might also have done the trick, but I think
this solution is cleaner)...

I don't yet know exactly if that was the problem but I think it surely was.
However, if it won't work, I'll continue seeking for the problem and let you

Consider this as a bugfix :)
