Yes been through all that:

huedgedv:webmeth /opt/edgftp/cndm3ftp $which logname
huedgedv:webmeth /opt/edgftp/cndm3ftp $ls -al /usr/bin/logname
-r-xr-xr-x   1 bin      bin            2442 Jun 09 2005  /usr/bin/logname
huedgedv:webmeth /opt/edgftp/cndm3ftp $file /usr/bin/logname
/usr/bin/logname: executable (RISC System/6000) or object module

After some of our admin guys had a look, it turns out to be a bug with the version of OpenSSH we had installed.

So we've updated from to and it's fixed the problem.
