bash: sometimes ~ and $HOME contain different values
Tue Nov 2 08:14:00 GMT 2010
The final line of my .bashrc is:
where foo is a directory other than /home/myusername.
When I start bash, HOME and ~ contain the same value, foo. After I
have worked on bash for a while, launching programs (mainly slrn and
irssi), ~ will revert to /home/myusername while HOME stays at foo.
Why does this happen? Is it a bug?
