I don't know.  I noticed this recently myself and was surprised.

I think that pinfos should probably use a global name space but, on the
other hand, I sort of do like being able to keep users isolated from
each other.  It's just not very unix-like.

Hmm.  Time to see about getting you a Windows upgrade again.  The last
time I asked my Microsoft "contact" he said that policies had changed
and it wasn't as easy to get software.
