No, it is not. You are right, the PATH that I see from the ipython 
console misses the directories that are set by .bashrc. Is there a way 
of making ipython aware of the bash variables? I thought that everything 
after ! is passed to the OS.

If I supply the full path to myscript, then this works. But so does

!/full_path/myscript
