Description of problem:
When I switched my user shell from /bin/bash to /bin/tcsh, I was not
able to log in after the gdm invite.

Changing back my shell from tcsh to bash worked properly. I guess that
there is a missing shebang (#!/bin/bash) in some X init scripts.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change user shell to /bin/tcsh
2. Log out
3. Log in

Actual Results:  An error message regarding X init scripts

Expected Results:  Proper log in
