    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    Is this logged in as the new user, or the old one?

    Good! I'm glad it worked out! Paste the contents of your bash_profile.foo.. you've now made me curious!

    Oh dear. Now I see what the problem was.
    I've been doing some work with a large JSON file. The contents of the bash_profile are that JSON file (122KB). I must have pasted it into Terminal maybe?

    is ok, I do that all the time. it's always fun when you go to paste a command and discover you have 100 days worth of log in the buffer.
