How do I set an environment variable that will be accessible to all programs 
started in a session?

Specifically, I'm trying to set KRB5CCNAME in $HOME/.profile, and it becomes 
available from a terminal session as expected, but it never gets set in 
Nautilus, where it is needed.

Looking at /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc, that script sources another script which in 
turn sources $HOME/.profile, so as far as I can tell, this should work.

Could it be that the Nautilus server isn't started by the user's session 
itself? If so, how do I work around this?
