That's actually not a "disadvantage". The *programmer* clearly requested
a random bash - and, computers being what they are, deliver what was asked
for. Garbage in, garbage out.

And it actually lets the admin take control by putting the bash he likes

I had hoped you recognized the joke here.

As a sensible programmer, I would not want non-deterministic behavior in my
program. I want the one true bash that behaves the same everywhere, not
something the admin likes.
