function in .profile causes problems with log-in
When I add the following function definition to .profile, it becomes impossible for me to log-in through the display manager after restart. The log-in screen sends me back to the log-in screen, indefinitely. I can ctr-alt-F1 to tty1.
What am I doing wrong? Why would that happen? I am running Quantal, although my signature may indicate otherwise. Thanks.
