HOME not set when printing with LPR

I was having a problem with LPR (I am still using GNUlpr) not finding my fonts when I printed. I found that the filter script was not a login script. I changed that but found that it still didn't find the fonts in $HOME/.fonts.

Some debugging and I found that the problem is that despite the fact that USER is set correctly to the user that started the print job that HOME is not set (it is blank). This appears to me to be a Bash bug.

I have now installed Bash-3.0 and the problem doesn't appear to have been fixed.
