What happens if you install xterm or other terminal and try starting gnome-terminal from it?

I get the following error when trying to start it:

"There was an error creating the child process for this terminal"


 i tried reinstalling the package 
 /var/log/messages doesn't have any more info on this
 I can ssh in locally via putty and can login in the other CLI vty's

starting gnome-terminal from xterm fails with the same error message and no additional info appears in xterm

Fixed it by adding my user to the tty group.
