Description Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis 2015-01-04 22:35:31 UTC
LOGNAME="root" is still set in ebuild environment when using FEATURES="userpriv".
Portage should update value of this variable.

Some programs check this variable.
E.g. getpass.getuser() in Python standard library (https://docs.python.org/3.5/library/getpass.html#getpass.getuser).
