 CDE, solaris 2.7, tcsh; hangs at login

I have tcsh set as my login shell for myself, root, lots
of others, and on my Sparcstation 4 (s) everything works
fine.  On an Ultra 60, logging in through CDE hangs.
If I use some other shell to log in, and run tcsh in a
terminal window, all is well.

One ultra 60 is in a closed room, and shouldn't be looking
out onto the net for anything (at least, not anything it
can't handle for itself).  I mention this only because it
seems like it could only hang because there was some network
activity desired which wasn't being handled.  But it seems
like it ought to be able to handle everything for itself.

The tcsh has not been recompiled for these machines--could
that be it?

It hangs on the multiple language "welcome to CDE" screen.
you can log in remotely, look around, see a tcsh with
zero time associated with the console, etc.; so the machine
isn't dead, it's just hung up in CDE.  We've also seen things
hang up on a Sparc 10 in the same way.  (2.7, CDE, same
non-recompiled tcsh.)

if you change the shell to csh you don't have the problem.
login goes fine.  (sh, too)

my attempts to turn on logging of the CDE errors have yielded
nothing--though i suspect i'm not turning it on properly.

I have a hunch this is in a FAQ, but i couldn't find it.
seems like it must be "common".

the guy two doors down pointed out to me that __I__ fixed this
at 2.6---it's a bug in our .login file.  the machines in the
closed room hadn't caught up.  sorry for wasting the bandwidth.
