Yet more I'm afraid ...
Don't be. This gives me a chance to fix as much as possible before I
* `su' should not be aliased in /etc/profile. Firstly, the profile is
the wrong place (aliases are not exported) and secondly `su' should be
just vanilla `su' by default.
Yes, this was a terrible kludge to deal with the fact that GNU su
refused to set the PATH correctly when su'ing from a normal account to
root (the end result was a root session without /sbin, etc.). I have
since gone into the source and made the appropriate changes to allow
for proper behavior without the need for such a kludge; "vanilla" su
should now act very much as expected.
BTW, the horrid arrangement of /etc/profile, etc. with all of that
source'ing is now fixed. Sorry about that.
