Really? The doc says:

   shell-file-name is a variable defined in `C source code'.
   Its value is "/bin/bash"

   *File name to load inferior shells from.
   Initialized from the SHELL environment variable, or to a system-dependent
   default if SHELL is not set.

   You can customize this variable.

Can you explain how this is a bug? In my case it gets its value from
the SHELL environment variable, I haven't customized it inside Emacs.

Yes, we discussed that before. However, I feel that is a "clean up"
with should do after the release (Lennart won't agree with me
though... :)
