Are you using GRASS 4.1beta or 4.0? In the first case, support for tcsh
is built in and you should have no problems as long as your tcsh is working
correctly. If you use 4.0 the startup script needs some minor modifications
to work right. I made these modifications, so if you need it you can email

Hope this helps
