And this is the million-dollar question: should they?  Two things
could be causing this behavior:

a) old-style .sh scripts are not supported, Michael needs to rewrite them for rcNG
b) old-style .sh scripts are supported, Michael has some other system problem

If a), fine.  If b), though, I need to really start digging.  Anyone
here know the definitive answer?

Thanks for all the help and suggestions,
