User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020408

Description of problem:
The $HOME/bin component isn't added to the $PATH.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo $PATH

Actual Results:  The $HOME/bin is absent there

Expected Results:  $HOME/bin should be present somewhere near the end of $PATH

Additional info:

In RHL releases <=7.1 the ~/bin was added by /etc/zshrc (the line was "($path

Currently zsh's path setting is unified with bash's in /etc/profile, but bash
doesn't suffer from this error since every user has "PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin" in
their ~/.bash_profile (see /etc/skel/.bash_profile).

I'd suggest adding to /etc/profile the line

"pathmunge $HOME/bin after"

right after

"pathmunge /usr/X11R6/bin after"
