I realize that this thread is already marked "solved", but for my own education...Is it possible that the OP was referring to an xterm and all that was needed is an option to run the terminal as a "login shell"?

For example, the preferences settings in xfterm4 General --> "Run command as Login Shell". The default prompt changes from "bash 4.1" to "user@host".

What did I miss? Is there a reason NOT to have xterms run as a login shell? (<---my real question).

I know of no reason why not to use xterm as a login shell, but our solutions were aimed for all terminals, not just one in particular.
