This is difficult to answer, you know, since you only describe a symptom,
but this can be a symptom of anything. E.g.: bash path variable not set
properly (I remember that there is a version of bash - be it the current
one - which only reads its config files when started with --login
parameter), gzip x attributes being not set properly, filesystem being
damaged, kernel bug, and such.

You simply have to find out more.
