It took me two weeks, but I finally realized that I could grep the
/usr hierarchy. The answer popped up at about the twentieth match.
I had put some stuff in a .bash_ file where it didn't belong, and
then forgetten about it when I set up squid for tranparent proxying.
When I copied my .bash_ files to the new system with no squid, the
garbage came with it. Instant headache.
