Further hint : "man xterm"  and search for "login shell".

I once stumbled on that one myself, and although I was no expert at
that time (I still don't consider me as being one, either!), it took
me less than an hour to solve this issue.

Remember : man is your friend!
And RTFM (Read The F-ck-ng Manual).

Regards,

[En francais maintenant:]
Indice supplementaire: "man xterm" et recherche "login shell"

J'ai eu ce probleme aussi, et bien que je n'ai pas ete un expert a
l'epoque (je ne me considere toujours pas expert, d'ailleurs), ca
m'a pris moins d'une heure pour resoudre ce probleme...

Rapelle-toi : man est ton ami!
Et LLPM (Lis Le P-t--n de Manuel).

Cordialement,
Yann.
