Ah, ok.  Thanks for educating me. :-)

Above seems acceptable.

zsh! Another (to me) oddity.  Yes, sugar-emulator should work fine with 
both GNOME and zsh - but obviously something is wrong here, and those 
are unusual at least to me, so haven't been tested (by me). We need to 
find something that works and from there try to break down and isolate 
what triggers the problems, so...

Could you please try opening an xterm (not gnome-terminal), and from 
there start a bash shell (not zsh), and from there start sugar-emulator:
