- Subject: Change to /etc/profile
I would suggest a small change to /etc/profile.
/etc/profile is being run by bash, which has pretty substantial filename
expansion. For example,
Will respond 'lib' if there is a lib directory. In /etc/profile, there
is a tr command:
/usr/bin/tr [:upper:] [:lower:]
which is hitting a couple of directories in my $HOME, namely 'r' and
'w'. So the tr is getting weird arguments (tr r w r) and complaining.
This could be fixed by changing that part to
/usr/bin/tr '[:upper:]' '[:lower:]'
Please let me know if there's a bug tracking system, or similar, to
which you'd rather me submit this bug report.
