Maybe.  It uses a shell function “singularity_which” to find it in the
PATH at runtime.  I don’t know in how many places this is done, but I
can try to patch all instances to use the absolute file name.

True.  I tried to get information on features from the Singularity

I’ll try to come up with a better description.
