Hello, Branden

Many people in comp.windows.x.kde newsgroup report that when they start 
terminal windows under their KDE sessions, they find that the variables 
that are exported in their /etc/profile and ~/.bash_profile, are not set.

The problem is that when user logins with xdm (or some xdm replacement), 
no login shell is run. Seems to be a bug.

Several distributoins are affected, including Debian.

It could be fixed by changing the first line in /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession from
#!/bin/sh
to
#!/bin/bash --login

Maybe this fix shoul go to the xdm package ?
