Thanks for the report. I've searched "ubuntu haproxy package" on google and it points to a page indicating that they derived the package from Arnaud's work for Debian. They provide a link to file a bug. In my opinion, you should use it, because if they take packages from one distro and change their default shell without testing for regressions, it's expected that a lot of scripts will break in many packages. I still fail to understand their reasoning on this subject :-/
