Description Michael Wardle 2003-02-10 04:57:00 UTC
Description of problem: 
/etc/csh.login tests for the existence of the user's readline configuration file (~/.inputrc), but sets it to the 
system-wide readline configuration file (/etc/inputrc) if the user's configuration file is found. 
 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
setup-2.5.12-1 
tcsh-6.10-6 
readline-4.2a-4 
 
How reproducible: 
Always 
 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Change login shell to tcsh 
2. Log in 
3. Print the value of $INPUTRC 
     
Actual results: 
Value is /etc/inputrc. 
 
Expected results: 
Value is $HOME/.inputrc or unset. 
 
Additional info: 
This exists in Red Hat 7.3 thru 8.0.92.  I assume it still exists in the current version.

A Bugzilla error occured while attempting to submit this the first time, 
so I resubmitted it.  It appears the original submission worked. 
 
Sorry for the dupe.
