Hey Bill,

First check to see if the MAXIMA_DIRECTORY variable is set correctly.  If so, 
and it still does not work, then I will install maxima and see what is going on.

As for the shell and scheme sessions, I know the scheme sessions work, but the 
shell sessions do not.  I have not gotten around to worrying about that quite 
yet. I am debating right now whether or not I should start merging with the 
newest version rather than fixing existing bugs......
