What's the reason for launching everything using sh rather than bash?
If I'm reading the bash documentation correctly, it means that
~/.bash_profile won't get executed (though it would get executed if it
were renamed ~/.profile).
I've always wondered the same thing...
Always assuming that /bin/bash exists, or that /bin/sh is bash is probably bad
style for portability across unicies.
However, in this specific case, it's probably ok.
