Mitch you DID IT !!  su - instead of su
Glad to hear it..

OK gang out there.

What portable tricks out there might be included in a script
to test for a user that typed "su" when "su -" is
required. An initial version would simply present a hint but not exit.
Simply "echo $USER".  If it comes back as "root", then they did "su -".
If it comes back as something other than root, they just did "su".
