PATH is okay here...

...and this is not good, but what I expected to see.

Unfortunately, GUI programs such as TLU are inheriting your  
environment.plist PATH, which has teTeX in it.  I add /usr/texbin at  
the end of the path for greater security, but since tlmgr uses the  
first kpsewhich it finds in your path, it breaks horribly.

The build I posted on my iDisk [1] has a potential workaround for  
this, and logs a message when it finds environment.plist or teTeX.   
Please let me know if this version works for you.
