This doesn't change the default back to the way it was - it just
changes the default on one system back to the way it was. I am
surprised that the default default has been changed, and I tend to
agree that it should be changed back. The old default default was:
tundruk# echo $PATH
I think that this is reasonable, but even if you want to be paranoid,
there's no reason to exclude /sbin and /usr/sbin - indeed, the whole
point of those directories is to have a place to put maintenance
commands not normally required by normal (non-root) users.
