This follows from an earlier thread about switching users from within a script. I am able to run my script as root, issue the 'su' command, run a few commands as the new user, and then I need to switch back to the root account. In a terminal I just type exit to accomplish this, however, the exit command in the script only halts the script, it doesn't actually switch back to the original user. Is there a way to accomplish this?
