Sorry.  It was right in front of me.

(It does look like we found a bug not directly related to your problem. 
  My shellCommand property is "/bin/sh", but bash is run in my shell(), 
too.)

I'm naive in Unix.

 From my Terminal I get this:
echo $PATH
/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin

 From shell() on Rev 2.2 I get this:
/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/Users/dar

I'd look in /etc/bashrc and in .profile, too.  There might be other 
files.  I don't get the long $PATH in Terminal.  Maybe some installers 
put them in .profile or other file.
