That's a totally different dep cycle. bash needs glibc because, well,
it does. glibc needs bash because of the scriptlet... I think.
Actually I didn't check that part - this was only for the info thing.

Regarding the bash dep of glibc - scriptlets don't require bash as
they use the bash shell from the parent. Why does glibc need bash?
