Jeremy Bicha reported the same problem so I'm reopening this bug. Since the problem seems to be related to the PATH environment variable not including /sbin, and perhaps /usr/sbin even, I'm proposing a fix to actually include those paths in the environment instead of tracking down each command that happens to be under those paths.
