If the above manifest (plus an include of the class) reproduces the error consistently, that may well be a bug.

In the context of a more complex manifest, I suspect you may be suffering the effects of dynamic scoping of resource defaults, such as

Exec { cwd => "/opt/will/not/exist" }

somewhere in the scope of the class. If the catalog is being cached, it will give you a clue about the precise characteristics of your resource.

You may want to try and work around the problem by specifying an explicit cwd parameter in the problematic exec.
