newly added users have sh instead of bash shell
Binary package hint: passwd
If you add a new user without defining the shell or upgrade from Dapper and using additional user accounts then the standard one all got /bin/sh instead of /bin/bash. Then every user has only a "$" console instead of the standard format and tab completion and so on doesn't work. It is easy to fix through usermod -s /bin/bash USER but it is very confusing at first.
This happens as well with upgrades from Dapper as with new installation of Edgy but only for manual added users, not the standard account.
