More info:

This seems to occur only if use_login is set. If not, the uid has
already been set to the target user and all works as expected.

One fix is if running as root, set the effective uid of the process to
the target user before the call to chdir and reset euid to root after
the rc files have been read. A better fix is to avoid the while chdir
and rc file stuff if use_login is set.
