How did you ever get .bash* to work?  Did you have bash installed in
your N800 before?

I have a .profile on my N800 with OS2007.  I don't know about the
default osso-xterm, but the maemo-hackers version does the right thing
and launches /bin/sh as a login shell, so .profile gets interpreted.
It wasn't always so; early versions of the m-h xterm had a bug and
did not cause /bin/sh to read .profile.

Would it work if you upgraded to the mh version of osso-xterm?  Is one
available for OS2008?
