        Suddenly when I log in through either powershell or gnome-terminal, the 
        is set to 'dumb' instead of the previous 'xterm-debian' (which is what 
it used
        to be set to.  Console logins are still ok, they set $TERM to 'linux' 
as before,
        it is only under X that problems occur.  Actually, sometimes 
gnome-terminal sets
        to 'xterm', but not always.

        I could just do an 'export TERM=xterm-debian' in my .bashrc or 
.bash_profile, but
        that screws up my console login.

        Upgrading to 2.05a and log in through either gnome-terminal or 
powershell (both
        debian packages) and type 'echo $TERM'.  This is using debian unstable, 
X4, and the
        gnome environment.
