The file /etc/profile is only read for login shells, or shells that
pretend to be login shells.

Do we really have to make /etc/profile more complex to deal with
system users who login to the system?

Are there any? (other than root, who already has its Private Group).

Is it ok at all that a system user does a login to the system?
