[kde-solaris] Bash / KDE / and Clearcase

I'm using Stefan Teleman's kde-3.2.1 on Solaris 8 and we are being
use Clearcase for source control.
I've had the CC client loaded locally on my workstation and having a
couple problems I was hoping others might be able to help with.
1. I prefer to use bash rather than ksh. So I changed my /etc/passwd
entry to point to bash, but when I start KDE, the konsole windows
still launch ksh. Can't find why they start ksh.
2. Much more difficult problem... I'd like to have a default
setview command run before my desktop comes up so all
applications can see files in my view. But the setview command
launches a new shell (bash in my case). I've tried something like this:
if [ -d $ATRIAHOME ]; then
if [ ! $CLEARCASE_ROOT ]; then
exec $ATRIAHOME/bin/cleartool setview -login a26811_soc
in my .profile, (with and without the exec) but it hangs the desktop start
process I think because launching a new parent shell during the desktop
launch process looses the rest of the startup process. Any ideas how
I can get the setview command shell to perform the full desktop / startkde
Many thanks if someone can help with either issue...
