What makes you say that?

This is currently the case only on recorded_scripts branch. This work on
the trunk, because the launchers have been fixed to set the path
correctly. This is why I am saying that if you upgrade your branch you
will have no problems.

There should be no difference between make distrib and make install, of
course. That is what the bug I filed will find out. But since the
launcher path bug has been fixed this is not a blocker.

I don't see how that would be the case. I repeat: the launchers have
been fixed; the paths are correct. Update your Wing environment to match
the environment that gets set by the new launchers.
