Path searching in svn_io_start_cmd

 From svn_io_start_cmd():

> * @a inherit sets whether the invoked program shall inherit its environment or
> * run "clean".

> /* Make sure we invoke cmd directly, not through a shell. */
> apr_err = apr_procattr_cmdtype_set (cmdproc_attr,
> inherit?APR_PROGRAM_PATH:APR_PROGRAM);

That should be "APR_PROGRAM_ENV", not "APR_PROGRAM_PATH", else path-search is
enabled as well as env. But didn't we specifically want path-search for our
external "diff" support? Is that diff support relying on an undocumented
feature (path search)?

Something's wrong. Anyone care to decide what?
