Re: bash exit command should be unconditional

I certainly have chosen the subject wrong, but I don't want to start a new 
thread now. Please let me backpedal a bit and describe the problem I am trying 
to solve.

A company I work for is trying to migrate their applications to Linux platform 
and have selected RedHat as the vendor. Redhat installs bash as the standard 
shell :
$ ls -l /bin/sh
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Jul  7  2009 /bin/sh -> bash

Now, because of the feature in question, scripts that utilize standard /bin/sh 
don't work properly. I afraid my suggestion to go "read the FAQ" with my accent 
some might hear as a profanity :) 

So the question is, is it possible to run bash in "compatible" mode? Maybe some 
flags during compilation were omitted by vendor? 
I can recompile the bash, auditing and rewriting all the scripts is just not 

Thank you,
Vadym Chepkov
