Take $ENV{'USER'} for the login name, as rshd, telnetd and rlogind all

set it.  I'm still at a loss to explain why getlogin and `logname`
(which make a supposedly secure system call) are returning somebody else's
username when cvs (a non privileged process) is run on the end of a rsh.
If I do: rsh freefall 'print getlogin' it always seems to work...

(If this doesn't work after this commit, I might commandeer Jeffrey Hsu's
login.. :-)  This commit may say 'hsu' though.)
