This question about PATH has a perfectly valid part (Question 1) which has great answers and a score of 267 which show how useful it is. However, the question also has a much longer second part (Question 2) which is not reproducible and related to a localized issue of the OP's system. In its current state it just confuses the readers, making them believe that a perfectly valid way of setting PATH variable does not work.
Could someone advise me on what should be done in a situation like this? Personally I feel that the irrelevant part of the question should be simply removed, but I'm kind of afraid of suggesting an edit which removes content from a popular question without getting a second opinion.
