FW: commit problem with cvs mode

(Summary and references below)

I do  not think  it's so important  because adding  a line in  my .emacs
solves the problem, so I will not  fill a bug against emacs nor jde, but

Please report such brain dead setups to whoever is responsible (probably
something like RedHat, Debian, ...).  There should be one place where
you can set all your envvars and have them inherited everywhere. 
This place is typically ~/.bash_login or ~/.login but could be something
else.  ~/.bashrc is obviously wrong, although it might work. 



The begining of the thread was here:


I'd some  problems with cvs to  sourceforge (ssh). I  set my environment
variables in ~/.bashrc  and in ~/.xinitrc but it  was not suffisiant, so
Sam Halliday told me to add
                        (setenv "CVS_RSH" "ssh")

in ~/.emacs and it works fine.
