if you need my .cshrc file, here it is below, maybe you can guess if 
something is wrong:

bindkey -k up history-search-backward
bindkey -k down history-search-forward
if (! $?DISPLAY) then
   setenv DISPLAY :0.0

my default shell is tcsh

let me know which configuration file I should look at

will see what Matt and Bruce have to say
