KDE menus (Lancelot, Kmenu, Krunner) not respecting PATH?

I have a $HOME/.bin (yes, with the dot) in my PATH:
$ cat .bash_profile
export PATH

However, it seems that Lancelot, Kmenu, and Krunner are ignoring this
PATH and using the system PATH. For instance, I have a script
"thunderbird" which sets environment variables for the Thunderbird
email client. When I launch "thunderbird" from Konsole, I get the
script in $HOME/.bin however when I lauch "thunderbird" from Krunner I
get what's in /usr/bin instead. Is this intentional, and can I
override it?

I'm using KDE 4.2.2 on Kubuntu 9.04. Thanks.
