Hi, thats right, I have not done sorce command, never done so. But doing
it does not make any differens, same result as export PATH. Its there
until I reboot.

And in X I use primary xterm and sometines aterm, but as I said I have
never had this problem before, these files is used from older install and
I just copy them with me if I ever have to set up a new instll.
