NVM inserts the path of current version node into $PATH, maintains the path when switching to another version.
I suggest that NVM could always maintain the path at the beginning of $PATH.

In my case of using tmux, it was all good without tmux. Once get into tmux, which opens a new shell, the value of $PATH of the source shell will be copied into the new shell. That would cause $PATH to always have the default node version located, then the NVM will become broken.

Having the exact same problem. It's been two years now since this issue was reported... @jacksctsai What did you do to get this working?

I was able to configure by resetting path after nvm.sh is called. I run tmux with oh-my-zsh shell

The commands to reset path is:

nvm deactivate # resets node path
nvm use 0.10 # sets node version to v0.10.12
