What besides the permissions associated with the bash executable can
cause the message:

Cannot execute /bin/bash: Permission denied

I don't know how to be more permissable than this:

$ la /bin/bash
-rwxrwxrwx    1 root     root       662926 Jan 18 06:03 /bin/bash
$ ~
$ la /bin/su
-rwsrwxrwx    1 root     root        14136 Jan 18 06:03 /bin/su
