I suspected something like that :).  That won't affect TeX Live Utility, even if you're crazy enough to put a path in ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist, but it will certainly give unexpected results in Terminal.

That, however, would break TeX Live Utility, since the contents of /etc/paths is always in the path before /usr/texbin (or whatever path you've specified for TLU).
