well- it does NEED to inherit DISPLAY... for starters. :) the problem is
actually entrance executing enlightenment directly. no other dm does this as
best i know. every login session is first executed by a shell which then
executes the wm or session manager etc. thus the behavior issues. wm's like e
expect to have a users environment already loaded by the time they run. (ie
users $PATH is set and all the other goodies a user wants in their SHELL)
