Description George Karabin 1999-06-20 20:51:24 UTC
I use zsh as my user account's default shell. On two
different RH 6.0 clean installations, I *sometimes* see this
error message when starting a gnome terminal:

/etc/zshenv: parse error: condition expected: -eq [12]

I can't remember ever seeing the problem when starting a new
zsh from the command line. ('zsh' or 'exec zsh'). A cheezy
20-try test shows that the problem doesn't happen when
invoking a new zsh from the command line.

I'm not certain what bad effects, if any, this is likely to
have. The only thing that I can think of is that, perhaps, a
root user running a gnome terminal with a shell of zsh would
not get a path that includes /sbin and /usr/sbin, from time
to time.

Probably fixed for our upcoming Red Hat Linux 6.1 release.  Re-open
this bug if after upgrading to zsh-3.0.5-15 or later you still have
this problem.  (3.0.5-15 will show up in the next RawHide release).
