Ubuntu is using dash as default shell, which causes all sorts of fun for 
scripts that assume that /bin/sh is bash. :)

You can fix that locally by changing /bin/sh to point to bash. As a long term 
fix, scripts that require bash-isms should start with #!/bin/bash, but as Erik 
said that's Autopackage's bug. :)
