I just installed 0.6.5 (on MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6), and noticed that 
one of my customized typesetting scripts stopped working.  I tracked 
this down to the script running with the PATH set to


while my script needs some things in /usr/local/bin, which is in the 
list of "Paths for TeX and related programs" in the typesetting 
preferences. I can manually add the path at the start of the script, so 
I have a workaround, but this doesn't look intentional.
