 xdm and tcsh login
When running inittab at level 6 and thus, logging in via X-windows, it
doesn't seem to execute the .login file for my tcsh.  The .cshrc is run
but not the .login.  

Is this working as designed?  Is there someway to tell xdm (xlogin?) to
run the .login script for tcsh?

Did you give your xterm the -ls (login shell) parameter?
