Ok, this problem was solved trivially - after some experimenting, I
found that I need to set both XDG_CONFIG_HOME and CHOICESPATH. Which
leaves the first problem, and means that my assumption about what's
causing it (there being a different environment) was a bad one.  Given
that it's now only aliases that aren't working, and given that I
generally don't like using aliases anyway,  I think I will instead go
off in search of a better solution to 'how to put ROX Appdirs in
(made noise, very sorry, etc. :))
