[tex-k] kpse program name

      kpse_set_program_name("dvilj", NULL);
    in a main program, it doesn't take "dvilj" as program name.

"Doesn't take"?

    kpse_set_program_name(), one expects that it *does* set the program
    name and not that it ignores the argument.

Well, there is code in set_program_name which is conditionally executed
to set the "kpse_program_name" variable, so I don't think it's
completely ignored.  But indeed, it seems Olaf added reset_program_name
specifically to reset the paths as well.

Can you propose a patch?  I'm not sure what you were expecting.
