We need more details, but I personally think you're barking up the
wrong tree. Unless I miss my guess, what you're really talking about
is an operating system upgrade, say from Solaris 2.x to Solaris 2.6,
and that the differences you see are really caused by different
versions of `csh' shipped.
Solution: switch to a different shell. For interactive use I love to
recommend bash, but if you don't want to have to learn Bourne syntax
and convert your startup scripts, you may wish to go with tcsh (a
vastly improved csh) -- though I don't know specifically what tcsh does
w/r/t the two issues you raised above. Either shell is widely
available in source or binary form; see ftp.gnu.org:/pub/gnu/ and
ftp.astron.com:/pub/tcsh/ for the source distribution master sites.
