Nothing actually *unset* the -h (the default) in the first place.
So, if /usr/bin/clear was found, *just once*, before you installed
it in /tools, it would still remember it in /usr/bin, regardless if
you 'set +h'.

Keep in mind that issuing 'set +h' won't do anything, as it is the
default. At least that is my understanding. Couldn't you accomplish
your goal easier by invoking a new shell without hashing turned on?
That way it would always use the path, instead of a hash table.
