>    Affects Versions: v0.9.4
>            Reporter: Roman Shaposhnik
>            Assignee: Roman Shaposhnik
>            Priority: Minor

> The following bit of code from flume-daemon.sh fails to produce the correct result under
sudo-type of execution:
> if [ "$FLUME_IDENT_STRING" = "" ]; then
>   export FLUME_IDENT_STRING="$USER"
> fi
> This is because $USER is not always set for shell. A more robust solution would be to
use the output of id -nu
