Quoteutil-linux (2.32-0.4) unstable; urgency=mediumThe util-linux implementation of /bin/su is now used, replacing theone previously supplied by src:shadow (shipped in login package), andbringing Debian in line with other modern distributions. The twoimplementations are very similar but have some minor differences (andthere might be more that was not yet noticed ofcourse), e.g.- new 'su' (with no args, i.e. when preserving the environment) alsopreserves PATH and IFS, while old su would always reset PATH and IFSeven in 'preserve environment' mode.- su '' (empty user string) used to give root, but now returns an error.- previously su only had one pam config, but now 'su -' is configuredseparately in /etc/pam.d/su-lThe first difference is probably the most user visible one. Doingplain 'su' is a really bad idea for many reasons, so using 'su -' isstrongly recommended to always get a newly set up environment similarto a normal login. If you want to restore behaviour more similar tothe previous one you can add 'ALWAYS_SET_PATH yes' in /etc/login.defs.
