This mail was bounced, probably because of the

Hi List,

I've just installed Mono through the Mono Installer
1.1.9 ; this installer is great, everything works
well, mcs, xsp, MonoDevelop and even the doc browser.

However, I answered 'Yes' to the question 'Would you
like the path to Mono to be added to your .bashrc or
.profile ?' I shouldn't have.
My .bashrc is now VimCrypt'ed, terminals in my
graphical environment as well as non-graphical are
unusable and the edition of my .bashrc is protected by
password (mine, at least).
When lauching a term, I get this (see screenshot there
- the translation of the first line is 'This
file or directory does no exist.').

I greatly appreciate the concerns of the Mono team
about hardening the security on my system,
nevertheless I would like to keep it useful, even if
not too secure.
What's the solution ?
