I notice that although I have 5.2 installed package.path still has 5.0 in it:

For the benefit of future readers, I found the source of this, it is an old LUA_PATH left in the environment from an earlier install.
The install page for luasockets mentions setting LUA_PATH and LUA_CPATH but 5.2 does not seem to need them and the latest release candidate for luasockets installs correctly without them.

Does anybody have a theory how this could have come about?  I have LUA_INIT cleared so it is not happening there.  Where does Lua get the initial value of package.path?
