Fons, I think some people have misunderstood some things you have said in this 
thread. In this case I think you misunderstood Patrick. (Or I did - not a bad 

I think what he was saying was that jackdbus would check for jackd in $PATH 
and complain bitterly / refuse to sintall / whatever. Not that it would try 
and control what $PATH was set to. Or perhaps you got that and I 
misunderstood your objection.

If there is proper understanding and objections / differences still remain, 
that is one thing. So often in life we are disagreeing with what we think 
people mean when if fact we may agree with what they actually mean.
