[gmx-users] MANPATH setting in GMXRC.bash

Hi all,

I'm using Gromacs 3.3.1 in Mandriva 2007, and I'm having an issue with
the definitions in GMXRC.bash. The problem is that, with the default
settings, I lose the standard directories searched by "man", i.e.,
typing "man bash" says "command not found". Without sourcing
GMXRC.bash, it works, and so it does if I add an empty string to
MANPATH (prefixing a colon, for instance).

I realise adding empty strings is a security problem in PATH (since
that means "current directory"), but it might be desirable in MANPATH
(I don't know about LD_LIBRARY_PATH).
