Don't use sudo with su. It is evil.
You want to use 'sudo -i' in this case.

Fascism is evil. This is just unnecessary.

(I'm guilty of still typing "sudo su -" via muscle memory even after
your messages on the subject. I asked a former UNIX sysadmin colleague
of mine and he does the same. We suspect that it was from our days
supporting Solaris, and a sudo that did not implement -i.)
