So my path in a Plasma session is

This makes the QT_SELECT thing from qtchooser not work
since if i do
QT_SELECT=qt5 moc
i still get the /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt4/bin moc in path first

Any idea why are we doing that? 
David you mention something about "D-Bus can be started" on your commit log
in 037c855f772dfe738229d42107445bb58157747a 5 years ago

Do we still need this? Can we at least change it so the path is added to the end?

It is reported and assigned to noone in
