I checked the preferences, or anything that could be different in the two
GNOME setups, and they were pretty much the same. However, I kept going
with that line of thought and eventually worked my way back to /etc/passwd
(which I should have thought of sooner), where user steve had an explicit
entry for /bin/bash as the shell and user cc had nothing. Fixing that
seems to have solved the problem.
I guess I'd better write myself a decent adduser script to avoid these sort
of messes again...
