terminal (xterm) opens in /root directory?
 
When I open xterm from user "bob" with home directory of /home/bob, the xterm opens with user bob in directory /root.

How do I set xterm to open in the users home directory?

Check the output of 'id -a' to confirm that you are indeed logged in as bob. Also, what is the output of 'cat /etc/passwd | grep bob' ? That should show your default home directory.
