Hi all,

My original post is at the end but basically since I upgraded from
Solaris 2.1 -> 2.3 my .kshrc gets executed at login but it does not
get executed when any of my xterms start up.
I got 2 responses: suggests setting a variable in my .profile
                export ENV=$HOME/.kshrc (this was in there already but
                                          thanks Dave) suggested using the "-ls" option to xterm. I changed
my .openwin-init file to include the -ls option to xterm and that worked.
This option to xterm tells the shell that is started in the xterm window
be a login shell. Thios is a good workaround. Thanks Leon!
