Never fails. Ask a question after struggling with the answer, and you
figure it out. Apparently bash doesn't like to do ~ expansion within
a "" statement. I had this (Which I got from somewhere, don't
remember where):

# set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists

if [ -d ~/bin ] ; then
    export PATH="~/bin:${PATH}"
fi

Took the "" from the PATH= line and it works fine. Sorry to bother
you all,

Bill
