#5554 new defect

documentation suggests su -s /bin/bash, but the default shell is selected without the -s option

If the documentation is merely enforcing the selection of /bin/bash, then perhaps that is redundant, or it should be set in /etc/passwd. if the intention is to give the mediagoblin user no shell access by default, then the thing to do might be to set the shell to /bin/false.

however, the problem with that is that the user is brought back to their root shell, and they may continue with commands that should not be run as root.
