I get this error message now when running the command 'strings' on any file. obviously I have the command 'ls' in my $PATH, so that isn't the issue. I haven't made any recent changes to anything except for a GTK upgrade to 2.4.0. 'strings' is obviously not dependant on GTK at all, so this isn't the issue. I noticed this about a week ago, but don't use the command 'strings' day to day so don't know when it actually started happening. Anyone seen this before?
If you need anymore info than that, let me know.
