On Win2k unlike the system path, you can modify it and it takes effect
immediately (the system path requires you to logon again).  You just have to
send a WM_WININICHANGE to tell the system it's changed.

cvsnt actually works fine without path settings... it's just handy to have
them for command line operations.
