Yes indeed, the default TEXMF is:

    then the *second* and not the first file is found.

Really?  Because of the relative locations of pdftex and dvips in the
lower components of the path?  That seems like a bug in the path

    I think this is another good example why search paths should be *simple*.

I don't think anyone is arguing the principle.

Meanwhile, I'm afraid I still don't understand the problem or the
remedy, since Staszek said the text I posted, based on Thomas's email,
was wrong.
