this shouldn't happen. texexec calls pdfetex with a --fmt, not by 
making a command.

It would be interesting to see why this happens because the texexec I 
ship is version 5.0

Thinking about it, I guess you installed the new TeX but you had an old 
ConTeXt updater installed. Either remove the ConTeXt update package or 
update and install it again would probably solve your issue.

I guess I need to remove a ConTeXt updater from texmf.local when TL2004 
is installed. Ugly, because normally I would leave texmf.local to the 
site admin and leave it alone. I have to think about this one.
