 Can you look at src/tests/util/sh/ and submit any needed
 corrections (or additions) in one or more new PRs?
 If we do this all with respect to the specific behavior of specific
 examples (creating more when necessary) there might be some chance of
 getting all the details right. Otherwise, there are too many
 exceptions and combinations and confounding factors.
 (To run the thing, "compile" it, then cd obj && ./t_set_e. Note that
 you can also do env TEST_SH=ksh ./t_set_e to see what ksh does, or
 similarly for other shells.)
