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.
