I'm less familiar with this area than you, but it seems strange that
emacs expects a user env setting for INFOPATH to have a path-separator
already appended to it.  Shouldn't the code that  as you say merges
INFOPATH and Info-default-directory-list take care of this?

So it seems the problem is not with INFOPATH per se, but the whole
approach used by ns-init-paths.  Would it be possible to use the
alternative you posted for all of these other variables as well, or
would they be adjusted too late?
