Konsole and the Korn Shell Help

	I use the Korn shell (ksh93) as my primary shell. I my .profile file I have 
the following variable declaration

VISUAL=${whence emacs)
export VISUAL

This allows for emacs editing mode without having to explicitly set it every 
time I need a new terminal. This works fine on a terminal login, but when I 
use Konsole this variable is not being set properly, in fact, the variable 
doesn't seem to be recognized by Konsole at all. Does anyone have any 
suggestions about what I may be doing wrong? Thanks.
