Hi all,

Will the shell change to dash from bash in linux affect any GRASS startup
scripts now ? Are they all ported to dash? Most of scripts worked with bash
doesn't work with dash and Ubuntu changed to dash by default. So when
referring to /bin/sh its actually /bin/dash and loops and some increment
operators wont work with dash. So does GRASS GIS sets its shell to be
bash/dash shell instead of /bin/sh which in some distro maybe bash and dash
in others.
