[Sidefx-houdini-list] houdini.env vs environment variable

I'm finally getting around to setting a central path for our hda's. This is
OS X. I can get it to work if I set this in the environment.plist file for
each machine:

launchctl setenv HOUDINI_OTLSCAN_PATH /Volumes/tools/houdini/hda

But I wanted to try to use the houdini.env file instead. If I do this:

HOUDINI_OTLSCAN_PATH = "/Volumes/tools/houdini/hda;&"

It doesn't work. Any ideas why? Thanks.
