Subject: ssh and a missing shell (is there a fallback shell?)

I was recompiling some things in pkgsrc and my shell, tcsh, was missing.
Trying to use ssh gave me an odd prompt, just:
What I expected was to see:
Enter passphrase for key ...
I had the default pam configuration.
None of my passwords worked (or did work, but were refused because I had
no shell, I don't know.)
I figured out what was wrong after trying to log in at the console and
getting an error message there.
Is this the proper behavior?
