It should be there, but some kind of bug prevents evaluation of
~/.bash_profile (which adds this directory to $PATH).

$ echo $PATH
/home/ensc/bin:/usr/lib64/qt-3.3/bin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/lib64/ccache:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games

<press alt-shift-f2 -> starts the xfrun4 "Run program" application)
$ ps wwwe `/sbin/pidof xfrun4`
 4220 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/bin/xfrun4 --daemon ... PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games


It's probably some kind of undebuggable d-bus interaction :( Hence, use
xterm to start your applications, but not this buggy desktop crap.
