/etc/environment is read at login, right? Then a log out-log in would  
be enough, if that's what you mean ---as Lars implied in his reply:  
[with his symlink] ``no reboot/relogin is needed''.

I admit it's a mania I have for rebooting instead of log out and log  
back in ---in pre X MacOS (System 9 and back), a reboot was always a  
good way to clean up memory, which wasn't managed as efficiently as  
with today's *nix OSs.
