See http://www.netbsd.org/cgi-bin/query-pr-single.pl?number=33960 for
another case of sh crashing. The bug is still open (and assigned to the
wrong person: the package maintainer does not maintain /bin/sh).
It seems to be related to the "test" (or "[") builtin command too, at
least there is one nearby.
