I think it took care of things.  I now get the proper environment that I
was expecting to see.

Logins appear to be tracked differently now, though.  In past releases,
I had noticed that each shell was associated with a different TTY.  Now
I see that I'm logged in to TTY :0.  Is that how it is supposed to be?
