It turns out that os.execute doesn't have the expected behaviour on

The scripts are not being executed - although there was no indication of
that after running the command. 

Has anyone had to do this? Any solution?

 Well, you can always use the old standby:

 os.execute('COMMAND > /tmp/1')

 or even

 f = io.popen ('COMMAND')
