Or another more simple patch that not ignores the variable, recognize it.

Is that still a problem with tcsh 6.16.00-1 ?

This fix isn't in the source for tcsh 6.16 so tcsh will need to be patched. I also found another patch
I'll need to check which one would be better. BTW, did you created the rs.diff patch from scratch or did you get it somewhere?

Oops, sorry i get rs.diff from here
