Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 24257
/etc/skel/.bash_profile sets empty $USERNAME
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
The default .bash_profile in /etc/skel sets $USERNAME to "".
It should either set it to $USER, or `id -un` (ala /etc/profile) or leave
it undefined. Setting it explicitly to empty makes no sense.
This problem also exists in 7.0
