Description jeastmond 1999-08-27 03:09:28 EDT
I type su -p to give myself root privileges & then ctrl-D
to get back to my normal user shell. It would be nice if
a newline was issued on exiting the super-user shell.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-27 10:13:59 EDT
	echo 'echo ""' >> ~root/.bash_logout
if you whish this feature. The command su is used in too many
cron scripts to try to get this right in the source code.
