- Subject: TCSH startup scripts failure
As of the latest version of Cygwin, there is a flaw in the tcsh startup
scripts in /etc and /etc/profile.d that causes tcsh to fail if $HOME
contains a space (eg "/home/John Smith")
Lines such as
if ( -r $HOME/.cshrc ) ...
will cause errors unless changed to
if ( -r "$HOME/.cshrc" ) ...
This appears to have been fixed for bash.
