Environment Variable HOME not set

Issue #457 resolved
Anonymous created an issue

when monit starts a process with "as uid" option, the variable HOME is not set. This behavior differs from cron which sets the variable. Some programs (e.g. X11) evaluate this variable.

Example:

check process conat with PIDFILE /home/mba/...
   start   program = "..."   as uid "mba"


monit -V
This is Monit version 5.18
