Nonetheless, they did provide a solution. Use $UserBaseDirectory/Kernel/init.m and not $UserBaseDirectory/FrontEnd/init.m for adding such variables. Perhaps I could find a way to add them to the FrontEnd context, but for now, I don't care. Thanks for the feedback Bill, that certainly helped resolve the problem.
