The man page provided in the default openSUSE installation states for set_home
that "This flag is off by default." This is wrong and made it impossible to
discover the cause of the unexpected behaviour.

Thanks for the report.
I've fixed the default status in the manual for the flags openSUSE sets
explicitly in /etc/sudoers:
always_set_home, targetpw and insults.

Ideally I do not think the program should be compiled in a non-standard way,
especially when the default configuration of the /etc/sudoers file includes a
stronger setting so it would only apply to those who customize their
configuration. But as there will have been a decision made to make it this
way, the documentation needs to be updated to reflect this difference.

Well, almost all distributions do their own tweaks.
This setting has been the default in openSUSE for a long time,
so a change will be made only if it'll be really desired.
