Saucy confmodule exiting

Asked by James Shimer on 2013-10-30

I'm having trouble sourcing /usr/share/debconf/confmodule on Ubnutu Saucy(13.10).

I turned on -x and got:
Can't exec "-bash": No such file or directory at /usr/share/perl/5.14/IPC/Open3.pm line 186.
open2: exec of -bash failed at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/ConfModule.pm line 59

Looks like its a login/shell/environment issue, where first shell reports as "-bash" instead of "bash"
~# echo $0
-bash
~# bash
~# echo $0
bash

starting another bash, and then sourcing confmodule does start redirecting, but having different issues with that.
