/usr/bin/gwibber-accounts has bogus #! line

Bug #988385 reported by Barry Warsaw on 2012-04-25
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gwibber (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

% head -n 1 /usr/bin/gwibber-accounts
#!/usr/bin/env python

This is destined to break. It is never a good idea for production code to use /usr/bin/env. Instead, it should use #!/usr/bin/python just like gwibber-service does.

Note that it's okay for the *development* branch to use /usr/bin/env, in fact, it's preferable so that it's easier to develop against alternative Python's. Once deployed though, it must use /usr/bin/python.
