The case of letters can play a role.

Some shell RC files can set a different environment that this PLIST.

You might also check with ps (ps -lwwwxe) from some command line and with process-environment and exec-path from inside the actual process environments. And please do it with launched with -Q – it's better to leave all your potential mistakes in init files out.



Clovis' Consideration of an Atmospheric Anomaly:

       than by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere,
       bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.

The problem was in the .emacs file, as you were hinting. There was a line break in the middle of the following s-exp:

(setenv "PATH" "/opt/local/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:$HOME/ bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin")

line break -> .../usr/b\nin/:..

Ironically, ssh is located in /usr/bin

This was preventing the proper information from being set. The line break was near the edge of the frame, so I didn't notice it, although I had looked at that line many times while trying to figure this out.

This line was simply breaking the PATH variable and it is also why when I reloaded the PATH information using code further down in the file, the problem would disappear.


Thanks again
