My 32 and 64-bit .bash_profile scripts are identical and the default; I learned long ago
not to waste effort on tweaking individual setups. both 1494 bytes long, both mistyping
'beneficial'. Different MD5 sums, but:
$ diff bash32 bash64
< # base-files version 4.2-3
> # base-files version 4.2-4
However, the CVS_RSH hint worked and fixed the problem on that 64-bit install.
Easy enough to add in a two-line checkout script, but...
I've got another older 64-bit install - again, default scripts - that has never
shown this problem.
There's something very odd here; where else in systemwide scripts
might set CVS_RSH?
