Description of problem:
at the bash prompt when I am at /root the prompt shows
[root@pc4331 ~]#
if I cd to / then I see
[root@pc4331 /]#
if I cd to /usr/local I see
[root@pc4331 local]#

I should see 
[root@pc4331 root]# when I am in /root

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. goto a prompt
2. cd /root

Actual Results:  I see [root@pc4331 ~]#

Expected Results:  I should see [root@pc4331 root]#

Additional info:
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2004-09-24 04:10:41 EDT
This is expected behaviour when HOME=/root.
Comment 2 Jason 2004-09-24 17:10:54 EDT
Why was the change made?
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2004-09-27 04:13:04 EDT
This comes from the unpatched package upstream.  I think it's new
behaviour to bash 3.
