Ahhh...OK, so we are on to something.  It is using launch.ss (I got the
above `mzscheme' command line by looking in the web-server-text script)

I deleted web-server-text, but the install didn't seem to recreate that
file. I ended up manually recreating that file, and changed the command
line to:
   /home/ben/util-linux/plt/bin/mzscheme -qmvL- text-launch.ss web-server

And now things work as expected!

Thanks for the super fast response.
