The following patch has been REVERTED in this release:

the same effect.
I think you may have also reverted some improvements that had been made
to /etc/X11/system.XWinrc. As a result, starting xterm from the tray
menu no longer starts a login shell. I would suggest something like the
following, as we discussed in the thread starting at
Well, the point is that we shouldn't need to start things from XWinrc using a
login shell, as the change to startxwin.bat launches XWin from a login shell,
so all it's descendants should inherit a login environment.
Doesn't seem to be working though :-(
