Hi all,
I am running Rc 1.5b2 on a Debian GNU/Linux box. I am using
rc as a login shell (flag -l), and my $path variable is:

/usr/local/bin /usr/bin /bin /usr/X11R6/bin /opt/bin /home/carlos/bin /usr/bin/mh /usr/local/bin/mh

Rc seems not to be able to find any commands in the last path token, 
i.e. /usr/local/bin/mh in this case. Whatever I put last, commands
in it are not found (command not found message). As a work-around
I have now set a bogus last token, i.e.:

/usr/local/bin /usr/bin /bin /usr/X11R6/bin /opt/bin /home/carlos/bin /usr/bin/mh /usr/local/bin/mh /end-of-path

and it works fine, in that commands in /usr/local/bin/mh are now
found correctly. Sounds like a bug to me :-)

bye  -carlo

Regarding my previous message, I forgot to add that if I set a shorter
path, like (/bin /usr/bin /usr/local/bin), then everything works fine
even without adding the bogus path at the end.
