Also, I've noticed something kind of odd with gnome-terminal...  If I am in

if I open an xterm (from the first) I do see CVSROOT.  Does anyone know why
the second gnome-terminal doesn't inherit the exported CVSROOT, while xterm

If you use pstree, you'll be able to see why: there's only *one*
gnome-terminal process, and the two windows are simply sibling copies of
bash. Since the second copy of bash is not a descendant of the first, then
it won't have inherited the shell variables.
