Could /etc/profile please get a small change? Could it check that
mkdir $HOME works?
Our situation is that for laptops, the /home area exists on a PGP
mounted disc. But if a user isn't logged in, then this area doesn't
exist, and you can't mount any home drives.
So if you slogin to the machine, you get a lot of erroneous actions
from the body of that "if" statement.
$ diff /etc/profile /etc/profile.orig
< if [ ! -d "$HOME" ] && mkdir "$HOME"
> if [ ! -d "$HOME" ]; then
