Do I here a call for current-users-pkgsrc ??? ;-)

(It is a netbsd problem in as much as current pkgsrc installs this
version of bash and folks might rightly or wrongly expect an sh-like
shell to behave like one.)

Thanks for the sanity check guys, I had though that the only expansion
under double quotes was supposed to be dollar-signs and back-ticks,
but I was starting to doubt my memory.  I have already fired off a PR
to bash-bugs.
