But, when I run that shell, it does not appear to run my .cshrc file.  This is different than opening a new shell in Terminal, in which each new shell runs the .cshrc file. Is there any way to change the behavior, am I missing something? -- pr

Could this be the distinction between a "login shell" (bash -l, e.g.) and a normal shell?
Login shells (at least Bash) run more initialization scripts.  I don't know about Tcsh.
