    bash: run bash ptest as non-root user
    new-exp ptest fails as it expects non-root user.
    >From the failed ptest log:
       < new-exp.tests: the test suite should not be run as root
       < argv[1] = <host(2)[5.0]# >
       > argv[1] = <host(2)[5.0]$ >
       FAIL: run-new-exp
    Many of the ptests declare that they should not be run as root
    and a few fail since the expected result strings are for a
    user shell.
    When ptests are run as bash_user (non-root) the glob test
    fails with error:
        < touch: cannot touch 'a?': Permission denied
        < touch: cannot touch 'aa': Permission denied
    So ensure that the bash/ptest/tests directory is owned by the
    bash_user while the tests are being run and return it to root
    owner afterwards.
