[Pkg-shadow-devel] Bug#411997: login: rbash and su - username

Package: login
Version: 1:
Severity: normal

I have created a user with the shell /bin/rbash, when I log in to this
account rbash behaves as expected (can't change directory, can't run
commands starting with /), when I su to this account I again get the
expected rbash behaviour. However, when I do "su - username" the shell
no longer restricts the user in any way.
