I found the problem.  I happened to log in as a normal user on another vt,
and had a stack of mail from cron complaining about /bin/sh not existing.
Created the symlink to /bin/bash, and everything worked fine.

How did this happen? (CCing this to devel for input)


Debian GNU/Linux Because software support is free, timely,
                 useful, technically accurate, and friendly.
                 Reboots are for kernel and hardware upgrades.
