Description Stephen Walton 2002-04-25 16:52:59 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.9-21 i686)

Description of problem:
There is a typo in /etc/profile.d/lang.csh.  Line 13 reads

setenv LANG=$GDM_LANG

instead of the correct

setenv LANG $GDM_LANG

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

initscripts-6.43-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install gdm
2. Log into an account with tcsh as login shell
3. printenv | grep LANG

You'll see an environment variable called 'LANG=en_US' , assuming your original
GDM_LANG was en_US.   This is in addition to the LANG variable which has the
value en_US.
	

Actual Results:  Programs which depend on the correct locale work incorrectly.
