are you sure that you need hal?  i'm only running gnome, but have had
hald removed for quite some time and suspend/resume works just peachy.

i think '.' will respect PATH when it goes looking, but the fact that
you need to do this suggests that there's something more sinister going
on.  one thing i can suggest is adding a "set -x" under the shebang of
hte scripts you're looking at, to get a (much) more verbose idea of
what's going on, which could give you further hints.
