In order to launch login shells properly with dmtcp_checkpoint, it would be good to have an option (like the -a options to bash's exec) to set the argv[0] value of the started process. e.g.:

dmtcp_checkpoint -a -bash /bin/bash script

    This at least compiles and appears to work in a quick test. Not sure if using a new environment variable is the way to go.
