If tcsh is the login shell, $SHELL is unset
Fri Apr 13 23:34:00 GMT 2007
I've set my default login shell to tcsh (by editing /etc/passwd),
and I invoke tcsh explicitly using the command
"C:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -fn 9x15 -fb 9x15bold -e /bin/tcsh -l"
executed from a Windows shortcut in my Start menu.)
When my shell starts up, the $SHELL environment is not set. (I've
worked around this in my $HOME/.login by explicitly setting it to
"/bin/tcsh" if it's not set.)
This problem has been around for a long time (I just haven't gotten
around to reporting it until now). My system is currently updated
with all the latest packages, include tcsh-6.15.00-1.
Let me know if I can provide more information.
