Hi all,

I've been hacking away on xterm and installed vim. A dream come true!
Thanks a lot to baf and the others for your efforts.

Two quick questions:
- what shell file gets started when launching xterm?
(i've tried adding some symlinks or other commands to "/mnt/us/extensions/xterm/bin/" but that doesn't seem to work)

- vim interpreted the "/mnt/us/extensions/xterm/bin/.vimrc" perfectly at first, but then I ran into a pernicious problem, which I cannot trace for the life of me: namely the mapping such as
nmap on :e /mnt/us/notes.txt<cr>
would not call the corresponding <cr> (and similarly with <tab>, <bs> etc.). It wouldn't matter too much for this single one, but I have a lot of such mappings -- and most annoying it worked well at first!

Any help appreciated
