Re: /bin/sh

When it comes to having a root shell for emergency use, you may look
into sash, which is intended to be used even when libc is broken:

Package: sash
Priority: optional
Section: shells
Installed-Size: 299
Maintainer: Raul Miller <moth@debian.org>
Architecture: i386
Version: 2.1-5
Size: 131400
Description: Stand-alone shell.
 The purpose of this program is to make replacing of shared libraries
 easy and safe.  It does this by firstly being linked statically, and
 secondly by including many of the standard utilities within itself.

On installing it gives you the option of making it root's shell. It's
certainly not bash ;)
