Bug Description

At the reboot from the alternate installer a new error occurred. There was a message window with the following text.
---
An error occurred when reading /etc/profile

/etc/profile.d/cedilla-brazil.sh: line21:[:too many arguments]
---

I'm installing in Swedish, so this is a strange message. I don't know the implications yet ...

Also happens in Xubuntu, and also after package upgrades. Not only on new installation. German installation here.

This might be fixed by upgrading packages / using a newer ISO image. After upgrading language-selector-gnome, this is fixed for me.

language-selector-gnome has this changelog:

Version 0.142:

  * data/cedilla-brazil.sh: Fix broken shell from previous upload.
