I am sorry, but I am not sure what do you mean. Does sudo 1.6.8p7-1.3 set
the HOME variable on your system, or it doesn't and this is intentional?
If the later is the case what is the reason for this? Did I open some
security hole by resetting the environment variables in sudo?
1.6.8p7-1.3 does not set some ENV variables because it was deemed this
was a security risk. As a result it functions differently than previous
versions and you have to fiddle with sudoers to get it to behave as it
