Has anyone else noticed a change in how Spacemacs handles exec-path? It used to somehow pick up the value in the PATH environment variable and use that as the exec-path, but it doesn't appear to be doing that now. I'm on MacOS, if that's relevant.


Interestingly, when I C-h v exec-path it shows:

exec-path is a variable defined in ‘C source code’.
Its value is
Original value was 
and the "Original" value matches my PATH, which is what I want. I guess that means it's getting overwritten somehow? :thinking_face:


I found this, but (shell-command-to-string "env") shows the right thing.
