root PATH clobbered -- where do I fix it?
I was installing a system from scratch, and I had installed a few
packages (with dpkg). I logged out for a minute, and logged back in
(from the console) as root. The next time I tried to launch dpkg, it
failed because root's path had changed to be the same as a normal
users, i.e. not including sbin and usr/sbin. It appears to be a
permanent change, persisting even across reboots.
Does anyone know how this might have happened, and/or how I might fix
it? It's not root's .bashrc. I checked; it's empty. Where is the
root path set? Could some package I installed have clobbered it?
