Hi Bill,

Well, neither are shipped as binaries. Both are compiled from source.
Looking at Axiom 3.9 with both AXIOMsys and axiom I'm getting a double
prompt once [Enter] has been keyed - I'm guessing this is what is
confusing Texmacs.

Thanks for the tip - turns out this is a bug in the packaging code. The
wrapper to launch AXIOMsys is the same one as that to launch 'axiom' and
hence the double prompt issue :)

Also it might be a good idea to add a noweb security patch [1] to Axiom
since Axiom builds and uses its own distribution and the version currently
there has a few holes that could do with plugging :)
