Look at file process.d line ~360, it is the very beginning of 
function spawnProcessImpl:

     const(char)[] name = args[0];
     if (any!isDirSeparator(name))
     {
         if (!isExecutable(name))
             throw new ProcessException(text("Not an executable 
file: ", name));
     }
     else
     {
         name = searchPathFor(name);
         if (name is null)
             throw new ProcessException(text("Executable file not 
found: ", name));
     }

Look at the "else" clause. If function searchPathFor failed, we 
are throwing an error "Executable file not found: ", which is 
supposed to include name of executable file. But name at this 
moment is null... :-(
