I'm having some troubles due to this change. I'm using bash, and the
new /etc/profile exports SHELL=bash.
This breaks ssh when using a ProxyCommand. I have this in my
ProxyCommand ssh -q otherhost /usr/bin/nc %h %p
When I try to ssh to somehost, I get:
% ssh somehost
bash: No such file or directory
ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host
If I set SHELL to /bin/bash (which is how it was defaulted before it
was set in /etc/profile), everything works fine.
