Possibly some of the shell scripts used by GDM (or whatever) don't 
specify the interpreter with a shebang line.  If they're written to 
assume bash and bash is the default they'll work, but not if tcsh is 
the default.  If adding a first line of "#!/bin/bash" fixes the 
problem, file a bug against the relevant package.  (Usually you can 
find the package with `rpm -qf /path/to/file`.)  Good luck.
