I detected a core dumping /bin/sh in -current when running the
following shell script _with_ at least 1 parameter ( parm1..):



  for file in $*; do echo Here; done

It vanishes if you remove the initial variable assignment or name the
'for' variable name other than 'file'.

Strange, isn't it? :-)
