 i like to use my own environment as root.  
 for a long time, i've used the /root/.bashrc incantation:
   ENV= HOME=~stig exec $BASH;
 do do this.

 with bash2 it stopped working.  
 it works from the command prompt, but not from .bashrc !!!!!

 now i get an endless loop.
 strace reports it's all sigmask stuff

        rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, ~[], [], 8)   = 0
        rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
        rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, ~[], [], 8)   = 0


 exec $BASH in .bashrc (i do it with HOME != ~`logname`)
