crond is always using DEFAULT_SHELL to execute a scheduled job. Though this is
set to /bin/sh which does not exsist on android.

I saw a discussion on a similar topic dated back to 2011. There it was
mentioned that on android the system reports the default shell for a user
correctly to /system/bin/sh even if there is no passwd file (which usually is
the case on android).

At least there should be a way to configure crond maybe what shell to use?
