Thanks for digging. I think this case, though, is that we were simply
using the wrong variable ($SHELL instead of $SHELL_PATH). Your
workarounds would help if somebody put zsh into $SHELL_PATH, but
fundamentally that is not a sane thing to be doing, so I think we can
just consider doing so user error and not bother working around it.
