rsh w/o .cshrc executed ?

Here's another one:

is there a way to execute sth like
        rsh remote-host "command ..."

without having the .cshrc executed (i use csh).
Of course, i could put sth like
        if ($?USER == 0 || $?prompt == 0) exit
in the .cshrc, but this does only cut short execution.

1. *AGAIN* CSH - Execute `target' .cshrc with `su'

Yesterday, I posted a request about the execution of .cshrc file of
the target user when executing su:

I received a bunch of responses telling me to execute:
        su - otherUser (i.e. with the `-' option)

This is, to my sense, not satisfactory (i.e. BSD like).  With the `-'
option, su behaves like login, i.e. executes also the .login file;
you are also moved to the otherUser's home directory.  I would prefer
an su which does not execute the .login file and stays where you are ...

I think that the point is that system V su does not change the $USER
environment variable (but only the userid).
