Actually, I was speaking about the fact that, even after reading
Bob's explanation about how to make dash the /bin/sh of a Debian
system, I'll stuck with Bash, to avoid potential useless breakage
on my system.  So ``if the system isn't broken having bash as
/bin/sh, don't "fix" it putting dash in /bin/sh''.

I have no strong feelings about the "ruid/euid synchronization"
behaviour (my only gripe is that Debian hasn't updated the man
page as well after changing the bash behaviour).

  Stefano
