Could you try adding this in the beginning of the same function
instead of the code I've posted previously:
local p = [ modules.peek : PATH ] ;
ECHO PATH '$(p)' ;
p = [ modules.peek : Path ] ;
ECHO Path '$(p)' ;
p = [ modules.peek : path ] ;
ECHO path '$(p)' ;
Maybe this will give more info. Are you sure you don't set 'path' variable
