        Description

        CR 6548615 was integrated with not all changes. This was just a hand-off problem. In addition to the problems listed in 6548615, it should have been noted that a number of occurances of "echo -e" should be replaced by printf(1). This is just good practice anyway, but becomes a real issue because the built-in behavior of echo varies between shells. Ubuntu uses "dash" (*very bourne shell like) while most distros use "bash", which dispite the name, isn't really a "born again" instanciation of the "bourne shell". At least the devlopers have a sense of humor.
