Description David Sainty 2001-02-06 19:25:34 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.17-9 i686)

When you su as root, to another user, you get a permission denied error

bash: /proc/19164/fd/0: Permission denied

This is caused by the execution of /etc/profile.d/lang.sh.  Subsequent
executions of bash as this user continue to give the error.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Fisher
2."useradd username && passwd username"
3."su username"

Actual Results:  Although not causing grave consequences (that I know of),
you get Permission denied errors which will scare some users.

Expected Results:  There should be no errors.
