this seems to be one of the problem points that comes around again and again.

Yes, thank you.

There is also a problem that often manifest on Debian and derivatives,
where /bin/sh is dash, as
some parts of the current generated script, and also some of our hints
imply bash.

Another problem on Debian like systems, is that the startup scripts
are ran in a distribution specific manner,
so for example the XDG_DATA_DIR environment should be set up in
.xsessionrc, as that is the only startup
script running on GUI session initialization... I guess there might be
other distro specific problems.

It might be worthy to have a look at other shells too, have a list
which ones are supported, or how could support be improved.
