[Bug 268547] /bin/sh 'cd' should get user's home directory from password database if HOME is unset

https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=268547 --- Comment #2 from Jilles Tjoelker <jilles@FreeBSD.org> --- The code looks reasonable, but I don't really understand the point. What use case is helped by this? Also note that this might use an unexpected directory if there are multiple /etc/passwd lines for the same UID. Apart from that, if you want this fallback here, you'll also want it for tilde expansion without a user name (the tilde is currently left unchanged if HOME is not set or empty). -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
