Description of Problem:

When using either KDE or Gnome Destops the following message is displayed 
on starting a terminal Window.  Applies to different terminal programs 
and also applies when additional terminal windows are started, not just 
the first one.  The terminal window itself is reasonably quick to appear, 
but it then takes a while for the error message and then the prompt to 
apper.  During this there is sustained hard disk activity.

Displayed error message:-

[: too many arguments
[root@localhost root]#

This is a new installation.

P.S. Couldn't see a terminal program option in the component list.

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

How Reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run any terminal program from KDE or Gnome Desktop

Actual Results:

[: too many arguments
[root@localhost root]#

after sustained disk access

Expected Results:

[root@localhost root]#

kterm is 'Kanji terminal', not KDE terminal.
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-01-22 07:00:09 EST
This certainly does not happen on any of our systems.
Chances are you (or your sysadmin) did something odd in ~/.bashrc,
~/.bash_profile, /etc/profile or /etc/profile.d/*.
