I just checked the su code, and indeed it now includes a piece
of code that overrides the path and umask settings if you are su-ing
to root. That code came from the BSDI version of su when I login-
confified our su.
I can see the rationale in it (not having root depend on
other people's path settings (for security reasons)), however it
conflicts with the description in the manpage.
Not sure what TRT is, fix the behaviour or the documentation?
