Please don't get confused: The Bourne Shell sh is to be considered
a batch shell primarily, it's not a dialog shell in the first place.
This is what the Bourne Again Shell bash would be mentioned as.
You can install it via "pkg_add -r bash" and then use it (note that
it's /usr/local/bin/bash then, not /bin/bash as in Linux). You can
use the chsh command to do this.

What does happen if you start a C Shell session from within the
working sh? Like this:

        $ csh

Does this work?

Personally, the C shell is my favourite dialog shell, allthough
zsh and ksh, both available for FreeBSD, are powerful tools, too.
