        "sh -i" behaviour changed somewhere in between 5.0 release and today,
        Emacs shell-mode doesn't function now.

        Problem occured first after userland update from one of early 5.0 stable
        snapshots to 5.99.15.
        In GNU Emacs 23.1: start shell ("M-x shell <CR>"),
        press <CR> in new buffer, see the shell process exit:
        "Process shell finished".
        Same happens when you try running commands.

        Change shell used for inferior shell:
        M-: (setq explicit-shell-file-name "/bin/ksh")
        Run shell: M-x shell. Try entering commands. See how they run.

        Repeat with /usr/pkg/bin/bash. Note its behaviour is consistent with 
        Use ksh as workaround, call (setq explicit-shell-file-name "/bin/ksh")
        in .emacs
