Installing Ubuntu-Trusty Clients - bash shellshock issue?

Ok - now I understand ...
It fits perfectly because I re-created my nfsroot on 5.May -  shortly
after my last Ubuntu install, today I did the first Ubuntu installation
since then ...
I dont remember how old my former nfsroot was -  but most likely I
created last year

Thanks a lot!
