#13717: Make "sh start-tor-browser" give a useful error message

 The blog comments have some Ubuntu users who try to start their Tor
 Browser with
 {{{sh start-tor-browser}}} (I guess because they can't click-click on it
 and this is how they think you run scripts) and their result is a
 confusing {{{start-tor-browser: 221: start-tor-browser: Syntax error: "("

 Perhaps we can stick some shell ninja code in earlier to recognize that
 it's not bash we're running under, and tell the user how to run it
