It works !!!

Thanks very much.

The only problem I have now is that it appears that my environment
doesn't pick up what I specify in /etc/environment, and I have to set it
up in a .bash_profile

Also, applications started from GDM don't have the proper locale set, so
if I open a gnome-terminal from the panel and then I type some accented
characters in there, they don't show. However, if I start another
gnome-terminal from the command-line of the previous one, it works.
I guess I need LANG to be set before gnome-session or whatever gets
called, but what is the proper way to do this ?
