Hi, again, Slávek. :-)

I have tried the export PATH route, both as my user and as root.
Still no joy.

I'm afraid I am not sure which files I have to delete or move in order
to delete or move my profile.  It is probably staring me in the face,
but I have searched both online and on my box.  Nada.  There is none
so blind as he will not see, but I still can't see. :-(
