If /bin/sh may be linked to different shells, you need to know that many
scripts on Linux are not Shell complatible as they depend on bashisms.

If they do and the shebang does't point to bash, they have to be
reported in bugzilla, IMO.

Yeah, someone tried to report a global cleanup bug for that
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=800607,

But it ended up on the "won't fix" list -- for reasons Guido mentions --
The best he was able to manage was an rpmbuild-advisory message.
Apparently making it a build-error didn't go over too well. ;-)

None of this solves the current problem of not executing the
scripts under the user's shell.
