      Description

      ros 0.4.10-RC-29-gf6a9392 gcc dbg lin
      Changes to PATH environment variable require a ros reboot to become effective

      Reproduction steps
      -install git 2.10.0 from rapps
      -open a cmd window and type "git"

      Expected result
      -git binary is found, as its parent was added to PATH during setup
      I double-checked: Windows XP SP3 does not need any explorer restart in that scenario.

      Observed result
      -git binary is not found, until explorer is killed and restarted (or ros was rebooted) to make PATH changes effective
