problems with $HOME in the past using sudo on Gentoo), but I'm pretty
sure that sudo's setup on the machine cluster properly.
That's true on most relatively modern shells, but not on pure
Bourne Shell, /bin/sh.
As for ``sudo'', ``sudo -'' invokes the login environment while a
plain ``sudo'' doesn't.
