Description of problem:
/etc/bashrc could set PROMPT_COMMAND to "source

trivially spawn a new shell in the script.

Simple change to /etc/bashrc (hence the setup package) at line 28 for setup-2.5.7-1:
Hm, while this is an optimization, this would break making that an
executable (dunno why you'd do that, but...)
