That might not do what you want: setenv doesn't change Emacs's own
environment, only the environment that is passed to subprocesses.

I suggest to set SHELL outside Emacs, and make sure it points to the
Bash's full absolute file name.

Alternatively, set the variable explicit-shell-file-name to Bash's
absolute file name, I think this should have the same effect.
