My process status command (ps) has stopped working in Mac OS X. Help?

/bin/ps: cannot execute binary file is what I get when I try to use ps.
I checked the permissions:
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root wheel 31932 Mar 20 2005 /bin/ps
And compared it to another machine with working ps, looks right.
I'm puzzled, and aggrevated. I've shut down, restarted, sleep'ed... Nothing works.
I'm wondering if this has something to do with my password box not coming up anymore when waking from sleep and screen saver (the option is checked, but it just bypasses the password box).
