bin/41654: sh(1) hangs while collecting command substitution output
>Synopsis: sh(1) hangs collection output for "eval $(cmd)"

bozotic netbsd software testing labs
System: NetBSD 5.99.14
Boot the i386 installation ISO image. In sysinst select the utility menu
and run /bin/sh.
Enter the following commands
eval $(fdisk -S wd0)
The top-level shell hangs in "piperd". The job is suspendable with ^Z.
ps shows a zombie from the fdisk command hanging around.
The system in question is a PIII 866 MHz with 256MB RAM detected.
This is repeatable every time when immediately running /sbin/sh from
sysinst's Utility menue after booting into sysinst.
