That's trivial to fix:
However, what I was suggesting was an auxillary program designed just
to examine config files. Maybe make a copy of cat and call it cat-nobody
(gotta be careful if it's been internationalized). Make this program
suid, and use it exclusively to examine config files.
[Also, in real life, a shell script cover should make environment
reasonable and pass in arguments.]
