login makes a users /private/tmp/@uid
sudo bash didn't make one for root.
install sudo, login as normal user, sudo bash
# cd /tmp
bash: cd: /tmp: No such file or directory
# ls -ltr

Not sure. what should initialize this? does this mean making sudo do something? It seems a shame to have to invoke the 'login' class of operations via flags to sudo, and since people haven't had to do that before, I wonder if this is going to bite people who sudo and expect /tmp to exist for root?

to be fair: the /private/tmp/0 link is made later on, but I can't say
when. On a clean system, inside 10-20min of the first boot with
per_user_tmp=YES it was not created in time for a sudo bash.
(what did make it? cron?)
