My alternate shell (csh, tcsh, etc.) doesn’t work right

Having a non-standard default shell will cause problems and does not allow us to set global environmental defaults for everyone. As of Odyssey3 we will no longer change the default shell on any account or support the use of alternate shells as default login shell.

Users who do not have bash as their default login shell will need to change back to bash. Users can, of course, still launch an alternate shell once logged in.
