sudo hint of /etc/bash.bashrc does not respect ~/.hushlogin

Bug #672496 reported by Giorgos Keramidas on 2010-11-08

Bug Description

Binary package hint: bash

The default sudo hint of /etc/bash.bashrc displays a tip about "sudo -i" even when ~/.hushlogin exists. Users who manually create a .hushlogin file in their home directory are probably acquainted with sudo already, so we should check for the file and skip the hint at shell startup time.
