Dear Bug Team!
The following is my response to Stephen Tumbull's post:

No! With "xemacs -vanilla", in the 'shell command toll', I get
the correct, longer value. Maybe that's the important clue!
I've discovered something else important. The problems I was
reporting did not start from invokation from an xterm. Instead,
they started from an icewm menu item. The code executed when
I pressed this item was:
prog "XEmacs21-nomule" - /bin/sh -c
is executed from a terminal, the problem with PATH disappears. I guess
the mention of "-vanilla" as a good clue was just due to me having
to invoke the command from an xterm and it was xterm invokation
which lead to the better results.
