My apologies for the subject "bug" report. It was my fault, due to
the fact that I'm a newbie to Rc. I was setting $path in my ~/.rcrc
file with:
             path = ``(:){echo $PATH}

while it should have been either:

             path = ``(:){echo -n $PATH}
or:
             path = ``($ifs :){echo $PATH}


bye  -carlo

I'm glad you got to the bottom of the problem.  (Don't feel too
badly; I've made the same mistake myself of removing NL from $ifs,
and forgetting that it will be then be preserved in backquote
substitutions.)

But I don't understand why you want to do this: rc automatically keeps
$path and $PATH synchronized.

Tim.

woops ... I'm afraid I didn't RTFM carefully enough once again :-).
Thanks for the hint. Well, at least I'm keeping this list lively :-D
