Ok, for some reason terminal on my OSX 10.3.3 12" 1ghz Powerbook is misbehaving. Whenever I launch terminal, it runs: Code: perl -p -i -e 's#%(..)#chr(hex($1))#eg; s#/[^/]+$#/# if (not -d $_)' ~/.OpenTerminalHere; cd "`cat ~/.OpenTerminalHere`"; My terminal prefs are set to the default (it executes the default login script: /usr/bin/login), and its not set to open a saved .term file. OpenTerminalHere is an app released by Marc Liyanage on www.entropy.ch, which you place in finder sidebars to launch a terminal in the window you're currently in, but for some reason, terminal runs the perl script above, and sends you to /Applications/Adium.app/Contents/Resources/Emoticons (the emoticons folder on the multi-IM app, AdiumX). Its really annoying, and very confusing! Any pointers?? I tried opening the default login script to see if there's anything interesting in there that could be the cause of the problem, but it seems to be a binary file? MrJ edit: ok, so i looked in the contents of ~/.OpenTerminalHere and it contained just the path to the AdiumX emoticons folder (GREAT IM client btw), so i emptied the file and it no longer goes to that folder, but it still executes the perl script. wtf?!
