I'm on mac os x 10.6 aka snow leopard and I seen when I do echo $PATH some strange characters are appended to it. My path looks like:
I've tried to see where it comes from but now I'm starting to question my Mac OS X knowledge more. I removed the export path stmts from ~/.bashrc and ~/.bash_profile. logged out, logged in no change. I moved the contents from `/etc/paths.d away. still same path. (exclude path_helper) I commented out the contents of /etc/profile logged out restart computer, still same characters.
I'm getting a bit worried that something evil is residing on my machine, or am I overlooking something?
BTW there are 2 user accounts on my mac, and the other is normal. Hope somebody can shine a light.
