Yes, that's another workaround: "just never use su at all, ever again".

Please remember, though, that sudo is not installed by default in Debian.
So, as with every other workaround that we're discussing, some action is
required on the part of the user to implement the workaround.

At some point I'm going to need to write a wiki page to explain the
change, and list some known workarounds, so that users can pick which
one they want to implement.
