Re: path environment under x

Ack! Some of you need to start using shorter lines in your email. 70
is usually the recommended maximum. Makes it easier to quote your
original message without line wraps.

Anyway, another way to solve this problem is just to have xterm use a
login shell by default. Just add the following line to your
~/.Xresources file

xterm*loginShell:  true

Log out and log back in, or run "xrdb ~/.Xresources", and all
subsequent xterms will use a login shell.
