bug#1333: 23.0; Emacs.app does not load ~/.emacs

From: Yavor Doganov
Subject: bug#1333: 23.0; Emacs.app does not load ~/.emacs
Date: Wed, 12 Nov 2008 16:54:29 +0200
User-agent: SEMI/1.14.6 (Maruoka) FLIM/1.14.9 (Goj┼Ź) APEL/10.7 Emacs/22.2 (i486-pc-linux-gnu) MULE/5.0 (SAKAKI)

Package: emacs,ns

On GNUstep, Emacs.app does not load the user init file.

Probably related, but it also doesn't inherit the environment when run
from a terminal; the value of process-environment right after startup
is "TERM=dumb".  Doing M-x ns-grabenv doesn't help much:

process-environment's value is 
("_=/usr/bin/printenv" "SHLVL=1" "PWD=/home/yavor/src/emacs/src" "TERM=dumb")

(This is when started with -nw, the only difference otherwise is the
confusing "DISPLAY=keel.southway-varna.com".)

`printenv | wc -l' returns 29.

If Emacs was built in a chroot and installed in a system-wide
location, e.g. /usr/lib/GNUstep/System/Applications, then M-x gnus
tries to create /News at the root of the filesystem.  Many commands do
not work, and Emacs becomes useful only after manually setting some
variables with M-x setenv and loading .emacs.

(P.S.: The `23.0;' in the subject line is the figure exactly as
generated by M-x report-emacs-bug.)

In GNU Emacs 23.0.60 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, NS gnustep-gui-0.14.0)
