I'm not having a problem with the almost identical engine (but using
bash) and your test file:
texexec --xtx "$1"
Note: I've stopped explicitly adding path items to the path variable;
TeXShop seems to pass the correct path---at least on my system, YMMV.
I had a problem with my xelatex engine and particular file names a
while ago and switching from bash to tcsh fixed that for no known
reason and I still don't understand that! :-)
