Re: XWin won't run xterm on start

One way to prevent recursion is

if [[ "$FILEINCLUDED" != "1" ]];
   export FILEINCLUDED=1
   ...  # do real job here

However, placing this either into the systemwide startxwinrc or into the
local .startxwinrc would not do anything useful.

The right thing to do would be to append a call to
$HOME/.startxwinrc_final (this name is freshly invented, feel free to
change) at the end of the systemwide startxwinrc. An alternative would
be to call $HOME/.startxwinrc_final from the same place from where the
systemwide startxwinrc is called; namely right after it.

Anyone feeling of doing this?

There's no need for this complexity. If you don't like what the system startxwinrc does, just copy it to ~/.startxwinrc and modify it to suit your purposes.
