Hi, everyone,

After not being on this list for about 15 months, I'm now supporting SGE 
again and need your assistance with a problem. The problem I have is the 
same one Alex Chekholko reported just about a year ago:


To summarize, when I use qrsh or qlogin to get a shell on a node, TERM 
is set to 'dumb' which leads to programs complaining that TERM is not 
set properly. When I bypass SGE and use SSH to login to these systems 
directly, TERM is set to 'xterm'.

The original thread from last year didn't have a solution to this 
problem. Has anyone come with a solution for this problem?
