Hi Kevin,

Thanks for trying RC3.

Yes, but where is that command?  It seems like running commands within
the test suite is running your xhost.  Files like .cshrc and .bashrc are
meant to be silent and produce no output, otherwise things like this,
and `:e *.c' in old vi get confused as the $SHELL kicked off to expand
globs, for example, produces not only foo.c and bar.c, but `...being
removed from...' as well.

This was one reason why xterm(1) should be kicked off as a login shell
with -l, or the equivalent resource setting, and one-off things done in
a .profile rather than a per-shell .*rc file.

Cheers, Ralph.
