Hm, I guess we should add bash to the quick start guide for freebsd.  Thanks for pointing that out.

We do need to still spend some more time finding weird edge cases like this where things aren't failing gracefully.  What you are experiencing is definitely not intended behavior.  Does everything work if you install bash?

If you use the google custom search box on our webpage it should search the mailing list (as well as the ticket tracker, website, and blog).  I suppose we should point that out somewhere.
