After all that, if it works, please never use su the way you described

Having seen that in another topic, made me wonder about something I'm
doing.  My /etc/rc.local file has a string of lines in it like the
following:  su tim -c "/usr/bin/fetchmail -d 900"

Should I be doing it like this, instead:
su - tim -c "/usr/bin/fetchmail -d 900"

Not necessary to change as you have explicitly given the path to fetchmail.

HTH,
