I do not think the bug on bash should be closed or have its priority
reduced, but the bugs on bug for that problem can be closed.

Well, as others pointed out you only have to use /bin/bash at this point;
if your system is so hosed that you have lost /etc, then having to
use the actual name of the shell is not your biggest trouble, imho.
