I found out why emacs wasn't working although I don't understand all of the
details. Some environment variables are different when I launch things from
the panel versus launching them from a shell. There was an EMACSLOADPATH
environment variable that is explicitly unset in my .cshrc file that is set
to some old path when I launch it from the panel. I guess EMACSLOADPATH was
set in some company-wide file that's included from my .login file. The
panel picks up the .login stuff, but not the shell-specific .cshrc. It
makes sense I guess.
