Duh, we were trying that, but missed the obvious shell to set to.

OK this works:

set the shellcommand to "bin/sh/"

is required, despite documentation that this is the default

"By default, the shellCommand property is set to “/bin/sh” (the Bourne 
shell) on Unix systems, and “” on Windows systems."

It's not the default on Solaris or Red Hat anyway... has to be set.

So, our eCommerce xTalk back end complete with CC# verification, 
authorization and run time charge and deposit with all associated HTML 
for online subscriptions to Hinduism Today magazine ... is almost  
complete. If anyone thinks it useful I'll post the code on the 
contributions... so, we really don't need PERL after all  --Thank 
goodness, because we are not "real" programmers here anyway...

Thanks for the help!
