I do not think all possibilities for my situation with Snow Leopard have been tried and I've not heard of a mass exodus from Snow Leopard by others with the same problem as me so I'm not intending to move to Mavericks until this has fully played out.

Wouldn't the stopping of function export from MacPorts' bash be a big restriction on bash use. For example, I want to be able to type "mvim", with or without parameters, to open a MacVim window. At present, I get the error:
"/bin/sh: line 8: `BASH_FUNC_usenosql%%': not a valid identifier". Would not the prevention of function export prevent me from opening a MacVim window?
