It's unlikely that this has anything to do with bash.  A more plausible
sequence of events goes something like this:

1.  boot process attempts to exec /init (doesn't init usually live
    somewhere else?) and fails
2.  boot process attempts to start an interactive instance of /bin/sh
3.  sh (bash) finds that it can't open /dev/tty and set the terminal's
    process group
4.  sh starts interactively, but without job control
