 The following information may be of some interest:
 when I configure Emacs to start "sh +i" instead of "sh -i",
 the inferior shell starts. Though it doesn't print prompts
 and possibly doesn't do other things unavailable in
 non-interactive mode. To start shell in non-interactive mode,
 (setq explicit-shell-file-name "/bin/sh")
 (setq explicit-sh-args '("+i"))
 Another interesting point, found during conversation to dholland:
 fstat shows that no process uses ptyfs, all of them open classic
 ttyp*/ptyp* pairs.
