Description Martin Gutschelhofer 2007-09-19 08:00:04 EDT
Description of problem:

When starting an xterm from a shell, the LD_LIBRARY_PATH is reset and empty.

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

rpm -qi xterm
Name        : xterm                        Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version     : 227                               Vendor: Fedora Project
Release     : 1.fc7                         Build Date: Fri 29 Jun 2007 12:32:57 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.In a shell set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to any value
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH xxx

2.Launch xterm in the background
xterm &

3.In the xterm determine the value.

Actual results:
The variable is empty

Expected results:
The variable should be set to 'xxx'

Additional info:

- I'm using /bin/tcsh as log-in shell, but I think this is irrelevant.

- When I start a 'gnome-terminal' the variable is set correctly
