Essentially that is it.  ROUTEUSER_IN_ABNORMAL_UNIX=1  means,
that there are no home directories for the router to look for
e.g.  .forward  files.

If you don't run interactive router under smtpserver, then you
will not receive knowledge that recipient XYZ is or isn't
locally known, but gets routed to the   error   channel
( which is how the '554 5.0.0 unresolvable address...' gets
produced in   cf/server.cf )

Ambrose is correct in his assertation that there are very
weak documentation about various style flags.  I shall look
into that question latter today.

I do think that current generations of router scripts (and
script language) are fairly immune to careless script writer,
and that built-in scripts are safe.  However Ambrose's
2.99.54 might be another story.
