If you are interested what happens when you open a new terminal window, run 'sudo opensnoop' in one window and then open a new window.

Here the majority of files being opened are in /var/log or Homebrew related.

Also interesting ... creating a .hushlogin did not change much. It still opens about 50 files in /var/log/asl/

Awesome! Thanks for pointing out opensnoop!
