Did you confirm that the path to your new bash is in /etc/shells?

address@hidden:tmp$ man chsh | grep -A1 /etc/shells
       must be listed in /etc/shells, unless the invoker is the superuser, and
       then any value may be added. An account with a restricted login shell
       /etc/shells is discouraged since accidentally changing to a restricted
       shell would prevent the user from ever changing her login shell back to
           List of valid login shells.
