Normally does not search the current directory - it searches you
executable search path for an executable starting with List.

Will only work if List<whatever> is in the current directory AND is
executable. I believe, but have not tested, that it will also fail
if the current directory is on a partition that is mounted noexec.

Works for me in F12 as long as List<whatever is in the current
directory. I am not sure why it isn't working for you.
