Does anyone know why logging in to a serial console of a VAX doesn't
work quite right?

You have new mail.
Terminal type? [unknown] vt100
Terminal type is vt100.
tcsh: No entry for terminal type "unknown"
tcsh: using dumb terminal settings.

If I setenv TERM vt100, it works fine, but just typing in vt100 when
asked doesn't work.

I noticed that too, but didn't dig into it :(
It seems also to make a difference, if you're root or not.
