I'm seeing an issue launching gnome-terminal as a regular user. When in a Gnome desktop, clicking on the terminal in the program list menu, nothing happens. Interestingly, I do not see this issue when running as root (gnome-terminal launches as expected). Another thing is xterm launches fine, but a program like terminator will launch and immediately pend in error "Unable to start shell:/bin/bash". I feel like it is a permission issue somewhere and I tried comparing a diff of a root strace vs a regular user strace and didn't see anything. Any help would be appreciated on a good place to look.
