With bash set as default shell in passwd use of CTL-C does not work to stop
a running process. An example, run tail -f on a file, enter CTL-C and tail
does not terminate.

With /sbin/sh set as default shell in passwd and then starting bash from the
command line CTL-C works fine.

Solaris uses deprecated syntax for `trap' in /etc/profile.  Bash-3.0
patch 3 provides a fix.  You can download patches from
