I've started to build another lfs, svn version. It's not my first time. But
now I'm facing a weird problem. At the very beggining of the process, when I
have to
su - lfs

I can't! It can't change to that directory. I don't know what's going on.
There must something with the host system, debian stable. I've reinstalled
coreutils, libc and login with no change. Even if I create a different user
with useradd, adduser, or just editiong /etc/passwd, I can't "su -"  to any
newer user. Of course, the book is right, because I've tried it in another
debian stable box and it works fine. Any hint of what can be going on?
