I use bash for my user and root shell.  To deal with mishaps I set my shell
in passwd to sh and create a small .profile which mainly just has this line:

bash && exit 0

That way if bash is fine I run it and immediately exit when it does.  If
bash is missing or can't run then the exit is skipped and I am in sh so that
I can fix things.
