Yep, I did that : )

I was only referring to changing my `~/.profile`, not the one under
`~/.guix-profile/etc/profile`. When I wrote the message, I was not aware
of `~/.guix-profile/etc/profile`. Yes, I am sure no package changed my
`~/.profile`. Which is good : )

Thanks for making clear which profile was meant. I guess that changes to
`~/.guix-profile/etc/profile` could be the reason then, the issue
disappeared after restart / relogin.
