OS Console remote terminal won't start

I have a remote project (Raspbian host) set up that is working well (WxPython development) but the Terminal under OS Console gets an error: Process failed to start: which() got an unexpected keyword argument 'env'

Is opening a terminal on a remote host supported?

What is the Python Executable set to in your remote host configuration? I'm guessing either this is an issue with using the "Activated Env" option or possibly a result of using a shell other than the default on the remote host.

It is set to Use Default but I do have pyenv installed on the remote so which python3 shows /home/pi/.pyenv/shims/python3

However, I changed the executable to /usr/bin/python3 but that did not fix it.

Does running 'bash -norc' work on the remote host? The solution may be to edit the OS Command that New Terminal creates and change the command line to something else.

yes, bash -norc runs fine. I changed the command to zsh -f as that is my preferred shell and I get the same error.

I can configure a command like ls -AlF which works fine. /usr/bin/zsh -f still gets the above error.
