Did you export it? Show us your .bashrc, or the relevant line in it
exactly. (And make sure that it isn't defined multiple times).

Also adding . to the import search path is probably a bad diea.

Neither of the files you described in your email message contain the
line "fib(1000)", so you pasted the wrong files.

This only matters if you want to "import mods".
