non-superusers can't use terminal


Ok, this is the problem:
i'm using slackware 9 with gnome. i've added users using
useradd <username> -m
and
passwd <username>
when i log into the user accounts in gdm, and try to start the terminal (gnome-terminal) it pops up, and then closes right away. using the terminal logged in as root works fine. anyone has a clue what this could be caused by?

You havent set the user's default shell? Or would it pick the system's default one?
