I apologize for the annoyance.  I've been on vacation and busy

time working on KiCad as I normally do.  Hopefully it wont be too

done for CvPcb.  Please bear with me for a few more weeks.

It's no problem, since the workaround is trivial (i.e. put the file
somewhere else). Just wanted to raise the flag if it wasn't noticed yet.

Have good vacations :D

A better option would be to do an #export KISYSMOD="/path/to/footprint/libraries". This will prevent the path search from occurring. This was done for debugging new footprint libraries. If the KISYSMOD environment variable is defined when Pcbnew is started, it will respect the user's preference and not use any of the library search paths. This wont have any impact if you don't have USE_FP_LIB_TABLE=ON when you build KiCad.
