Summary0000073: bananian uses zsh shell. New users get bash shell
DescriptionUpon creating a new user,the default shell will be bash.
That can be changed of course with chsh.
However, if bananian defaults to zsh  it would be better IMHO to add zsh as a default to /etc/adduser.conf.

# The DSHELL variable specifies the default login shell on your
# system.

should be changed to
# The DSHELL variable specifies the default login shell on your
# system.
Steps To Reproduceuse the useradd <some user> command

Sorry. Did not pay attention to be able to log issues anonymous.
Just registered as user hvdwolf

Edit 2014-12-9: This also requires that files .zshrc and probably .zcompdump are
copied from /root to /etc/skel to make it possible to simply populate a users folder.

Also add the following 2 lines to /etc/login.defs:
# Create users home directory

In /etc/default/useradd:
Change "SHELL=/bin/sh"  to "SHELL=/bin/zsh"
Change "#HOME=/home" to "HOME=/home" to enable this setting

Additional request:

Please add to the /etc/skel/.profile file the following lines:

# set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists
if [ -d "$HOME/bin" ] ; then

It makes it possible to run scripts (shell, python) or compiled programs
without interfering with the system setup or even breaking the packaging system.
