That works nicely.

Infact that works so nicely, I'm hoping you may be able to help me
another minor irritation.  

Here's the history:

Within emacs I've set bash as my shell.  Using the advice in your FAQ.

This has the side effect that from within emacs, when I execute
   M-x shell
I get symbols that look like: [17;18 embedded into the screen output.

After a bit of research, I found that I can remove these symbols by
using a .emacs_bash resource file.  This is posted below:


case "$EMACS" in
t) export TERM=gnuemacs
   export PS1="\$ "
   export PS2="> "
   alias ll="ls -Fl"
   alias lc="ls -F"
   alias grep="grep -i"


Now the ^[[*&^%$# symbols have gone but, when I start a bash session using
M-x shell I get rubbish at startup:

]0; guyw :: Home (c:/Documents and Settings/guyw/Local Settings/Home)11> >

Is there any way to suppress this rubbish (it's only at startup).
