Currently a NULL shell is handled fine, as the code first checks the env
var, then the passwd struct for the user, then finally just tries to
find one on the file system.
It would be pretty easy to add a check for a zero-length shell var in
the same logic that checks for a NULL one. I'll write one tomorrow, as
I think this is a much more elegant solution, as it fixes the problem
rather than just throwing an error dialog.
