I found my problem (in case anyone is interrested :) ). There is an
xprofile in the default settings for Scripts which sources Environment,
but that never made it into my settings when upgrading.

(It would be very nice if Compile and InstallPrograms could optionally
update  settings, but I'll write another mail about that...)

About zprofile: is it right to have both zprofile and xprofile that
sources Environment? kdm reads both. I don't know what xdm and gdm does.
Sourcing it twice is certainly better than not at all, though...
