[Vm-dev] different behaviour for Carbon VM depending on how it's started

Hi David, all,

thanks to everyone for the support.

The trouble was that the Python interpreter failed to find a library
from which it was supposed to import some symbols when the Squeak VM
was started from the Finder. While the Python VM binary could be
resolved without problems via /usr/bin (Finder PATH) or
/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/Current/bin (Terminal
PATH), resolving the library depended on the latter.

Putting the appropriate PATH value in ~./MacOSX/environment.plist and
logging out and back in again solved the problem. :-)
