I'm having trouble with sudo when I try to start an interactive session. It always changes the directory to the root's home directory. But I want to run commands in the directory I started the session from.

How can I get sudo to start an interactive session in my current directory?

The answer to my specific question is to call sudo with the -s flag instead of -i.
