Thanks for your reply. I have put some comments in line below.

Hmm, ok. So your point is that its ok for it to start out of 
SHLVL 1, but then it should be incremented by calling bash as 
part of the curl pipe and detected? Is there a simple example of 
this behavior I could test?

As far as I can tell it is real bash (from above, "Running `echo 
$SHELL` prints `/bin/bash`")...but I primarily use Windows.

All I did was install the operating system, update and restart as 
needed, open a terminal, and then went to the dlang downloads 
page and copy and pasted the line
curl -fsS | bash -s dmd
(I might have needed to make it sudo, I can't recall).

nexor specifically mentioned docker being a problem. After 
getting Linux Mint 20 set up and failing to use the 
script, I switched to the package on the website and it installed 
without issue. However, I later tried to get docker working and 
then ran into this issue again and was not able to use the same 
workaround (I know very little about docker and did not want to 
push my luck). So not being able to use docker seems like a 
bigger issue than not being able to use the on Linux 
Mint 20.
