The systems can be named A and B.  Both have xdm and LXDE.  I am working 
in LXTerminal on A and telneting to B through an OpenVPN tunnel.  EDITOR 
is not set on A but is vi on B.

These systems have .bashrc and .profile.  Neither has .bash_profile and I 
don't recall deleting it.

OK; rather than spend more time on it, I'll tolerate nano for the incrontab 

Thanks,                  ... Peter E.
