Use PATH environment variable for Filtered View

Reported by: woodsb02 Owned by: andrew_b

mc does not use the PATH environment variable to search for the executable when performing a Filtered View command.

To replicate the problem:

  1. In mc, open the "File" menu and select "Filtered View"
  2. In the displayed Filtered View command and arguments field, type "grep PATTERN FILENAME"

Expected result: display output of grep command in mcview
Actual result: Error is displayed "Cannot create pipe streams"

Reason: The grep command is not in the current directory, and the PATH environment variable is not used to search for the executable.
