In the proper environment you log in once. Terminal runs with a login  
shell. It sets basic things, can make decisions based on what it  
finds, creates things, launches programmes. This shell's environment  
can be modified by other RC scripts. Making the login RC script  
execute now again, can lead to erroneous assumptions. And doings.

As with ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist it requires some consideration.

         which it is concluded all clovers possess four leaves
         and are sometimes green.
