When unchecking the 'Show this window when ArcView starts' box in ArcView's startup dialog the following error message appears:
"Error in StartUp.ShowAgain at 153"
ArcView is attempting, and failing, to write a text file called 'avstart.txt' into the HOME directory.
The path displayed should point to where the HOME environment variable is set. Make certain that the environment variable is pointing to a valid path with a directory having write permission.
If the path does not change and the machine beeps, the HOME environment variable is pointing to a non-existent directory.
