You aren't supposed to use `:' as PATH separator outside Bash, only
*inside* the shell. Outside it, use the usual DOS `;' character, and
Bash will convert it to `:' for you if you set PATH_SEPARATOR=:. When
Bash sees a colon `:' in the DOS PATH, it treats it as a drive
separator and will convert PATH incorrectly.

This should be PATH_SEPARATOR.

Again, don't use this syntax outside Bash. Say this instead:
and Bash will do the conversion for you.
