I don't think that the latter is the reason, it's merely that the
Bourne shell, /bin/sh, reads /etc/profile and ~/.profile only then when
it's invoked as a login shell. (You can make it behave like that by
adding '-l' to the #! header line.) So it normally re-uses the
environment it finds -- and that's where ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist
jumps in! Once GS_OPTIONS integrated there, they're part of every
process launched after this change. The above cited addition to
/etc/profile or ~/.profile will only work in Terminal or xterm ...
I'm sure you're having already a test user, Guinea Pig, that has to
test all this ...
It's not the valleys in life I dread so much as the dips.
