Bug#1500: adduser makes a .bash_profile in the invoking user's directory
I recently used the adduser script for the first time in a while, and
was most puzzled when bash stopped executing my .profile.
Eventually I tracked it down to a rogue .bash_profile file that had
been created by some program. I deleted the .bash_profile, and bash
worked properly again.
I just ran adduser again and it put the .bash_profile back !
My cwd and HOME were all set to /u/ian, and I have used the
adduser.conf variable to set the home directories to appear under /u.
The user whose account I was creating didn't have their .bash_profile
edited by adduser to make the umask 002 (it should have been edited,
since I have usergroups turned on).
I suspect the lack of a directory name in a destination filename
