    $ENV{'HOME'} = $nh;

The getpwnam() is broken.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-09-11 10:42:57 UTC
Closing because FC2 is no longer supported.  Please reopen if this is an issue
in FC3+.
