I do have bash available on the box. That's what I run as login shell.
I have not checked what shell I was dropped into, but I guess it is
also bash: the prompt has the same formatting.

What exactly do you mean with invoking /usr/xpg4/bin/sh ? Should I put
the directory /usr/xpg4/bin/ to the front of my $PATH ?

Thanks for your replies sofar. If there is any additional information
that you would like me to provide, I would be glad to do so.
