xterm does reset LD_LIBRARY_PATH
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:16 EST
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
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
3.In the xterm determine the value.
The variable is empty
The variable should be set to 'xxx'
- 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
