    Put it in .login instead?

    I'm not sure about the filename (shell-dependent anyway), but all
    shells I know (not so many) have one dotfile that's run in login
    shells only, and one that is run in all interactive shells.

If you cc me or remove the list(s) completely I'll most likely ignore
your message.    see http://www.eyrie.org./~eagle/faqs/questions.html
