I remember fixing something ... 

>texexec --verbose --pass="-file-line-error -recorder" test
TeXExec | processing document 'test'
TeXExec | using search method 'kpsewhich'
TeXExec | no ctx file found
TeXExec | using search method 'kpsewhich'
TeXExec | tex processing method: context
TeXExec | TeX run 1
TeXExec | writing option file test.top
TeXExec | using randomseed 469
TeXExec | tex engine: pdftex
TeXExec | tex format: cont-en
TeXExec | fixing backend map path for pdftex
TeXExec | running: pdftex -progname=context -fmt=cont-en -translate-file=natural.tcx -file-line-error -recorder --8bit t
est.tex \emergencyend
This is pdfTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.40.1 (Web2C 7.5.6)

works here, so do ou use the latest texexec? if not i can send you a tex.rb file 

(puzzled by the pdfTeXK name ...)
