Actually, it is a bootscript bug.  They should be sh compliant, and this 
is fixed in SVN (as mentioned previously).  However, ash should not be 
linked to /bin/sh on any box with hotplug.  The hotplug scripts are 
broken in a similar way (#!/bin/sh where it should be #!/bin/bash), It 
is a different problem, but still sh incompatible.  IIRC it was hex 
expansion.  A note should be placed in the book...I'll get to it soon. 
Hopefully it'll save somebody else the problems you've had.
