I do believe You - recently I had another strange experience and again
w/ bash's 'if' construction like this:
if [ "$a" == --help ]
- in one Debian 5 it worked, another - not!
I use Debian 5 mixture of stable and testing - all updated up-to-day.
Both users use

No. And here the question arises, Why? As I do understand the su
manual. it says that option '-l' helps to load his (another_user's ENV).

Yes, it is executable - it runs just fine if I do:
su - another_user
and then in its shell run the
w/o specifying the path and the abc is not in CWD.
