There's also the issue I reported in [1] where interactive shells which have a 
non-interactive shell in their ancestry don't get PS1 set correctly.

(This affects the shell started by xterm when started from the X tray menu 
when X is started from the start menu short cut, and can also be demonstrated 
with 'bash -c bash')
