I'm reporting a potential issue with fwtools_env.sh.

Normally I do the first suggestions of the documentation which works fine:

I was working with someone else and tried using sh fwtools_env.sh which did not seem to have the intended impact on Ubuntu 10.04.

I'm not sure if this is a serious issue since there is a working method and you can also go to bin_safe and access things directly there.  

Is the '8' in the 3.0.8 subject a typo?  The links below and the downloads on the website are all 3.0.6.

Bests, Eli
