This map be insultingly obvious, but I'll mention it anyway: If you  
start applications from the OS X finder, they don't inherit  
environment variables from standard .cshrc-et-al files.  There are  
various ways to remedy this, but the easiest way is simply to start  
DrScheme at the command line.

But you knew that, right?

Of course, the context of the question was what documentation to  
provide to users, and for them, it's not reasonable to suggest that  
they always start from the command line. So I think the suggestion  
that you made is not an unreasonable one, with the change that the  
documentation should be grumpy about the breakdown of the environment  
variable system, rather than suggesting that it's a bug in the FFI
