No, no, that all looks normal to me.  E.G.:

computer:~/plt clements$ echo $PLTCOLLECTS
computer:~/plt clements$ mzscheme
Welcome to MzScheme v371.3 [3m], Copyright (c) 2004-2007 PLT Scheme Inc.

(#<path:/Users/clements/svn/clements/collects> #<path:/Users/clements/ 
clements/matthias/collects> #<path:/Users/clements/Library/PLT Scheme/ 
371.3/collects> #<path:/Users/clements/plt/collects>)

... and my auto-complete seems to be working fine.
