So ... I guess that means compare /etc/*, compare list of installed
packages and package versions, compare individual scripts like .bashrc
(not sure if xterm has a user-specific config file somewhere as well),
check if LD_PRELOAD and if all else fails, check the ldd and strace
output of all the executables involved.

Sounds like a whole lot of work.  Hope you'll be able to figure this out.

In the meantime, can we close the bug, since you stated it's not
