The PATH is showing...

[Macintosh-2:~] howarth% printenv PATH

It seems obvious that it had to be set otherwise opening a
new Terminal window wouldn't solve the issue. I'll
try bash to verify that problem disappears under that
shell. It is a really odd glitch as I've never seen
tcsh not 'find' new files after a rehash but require
a new Terminal window. FYI, this is under Snow Leopard.
