Well since we are a source-based distribution, every time you upgrade
something. As Juergen said, if you have bashism in your scripts -
shebang it to #!/bin/bash!

I have to say I'm surprised by the short memory people seems to have. A
year ago everyone wanted to get rid of bash due to a few security holes
and now everyone seems to love it again :-)
