I tried to figure out what is going wrong but think I need to leave this 
to someone that better
understands bash syntax to fix (the colorizing code is in the open 
source scintilla component).
It's pretty complicated -- after all bash is almost perl. ;-)

A work-around is to put the DAEMON= line before the PATH= line -- that 
seems to fix
the highlighting.  Putting the value in quotes works also, tho I'm not 
certain if that will
break something.

Sorry I don't have a better answer for this one.
