Just as an FYI to anyone who is thinking of upgrading (or who already 
has) ...

The symlink behind /usr/bin/sh now points to the dash binary instead of 
the bash binary so if you have any shell scripts that make use of bash 
specific features but that don't have a bash hash-bang line (the "#!" 
line at the top) they may start failing.

The fix is to edit the script to use "#! /usr/bin/bash"
