This is nothing that would matter (m-a-d just monitors some entries
under /proc that are not available in standard kernels), you can
safely ignore it.

Most obvious problems that give this message are
a) file is not there ;)
b) file is there, but is for a wrong architecture (for example arm
binary on i386)

The latter might not be that obvious, unless you've done it often
enough to remember it (/me tries to look innocent, but fails ;).

You can tell which arch the file is for by running "file /usr/bin/filename".

Running maemo-af-desktop with the strace utility should tell you what
it tries to access, and where, but since it uses the maemo-launcher
thing it's a bit tricky. You could always build m-a-d yourself and
omit the maemo-launcher feature so you'd get a real binary to run.
Strace can be a bit verbose too...
