Hi,

I incidently found a reply to my bug report with Google. As you could
have expected I am not subscribed to address@hidden or whatever. 
Anyway, you're right I missed this in the manpage. Does this change
anything? I don't think so. You often have to work with a system
you haven't set up yourself, and you might not even be aware - or
check that /bin/sh is actually bash. Blah blah blah...
Do you really expect me to throw hundreds of real-life examples
involving a dot in PATH? Do you think you can fix issues by a stupid
RTFM? What's next? "We sell rope."? Actually, all you have to miss
in the documentation is *two* fuckin characters. This is a SECURITY
issue. There a dozens if not hundreds of switches and buttons to push.
Don't you think this is a *little* too few of a hint?
