login makes a users /private/tmp/@uid

sudo bash didn't make one for root.

install sudo, login as normal user, sudo bash

# cd /tmp 
bash: cd: /tmp: No such file or directory
# pwd
# ls -ltr

Not sure. what should initialize this? does this mean making sudo do something? 
It seems a shame to have to invoke the 'login' class of operations via flags to 
sudo, and since people haven't had to do that before, I wonder if this is going 
to bite people who sudo and expect /tmp to exist for root?
