   | Synopsis: /bin/sh misparses $10 (etc)
   | christos worked on this, is it fixed?
 Yes, this is fixed.   However, this one (of all the recent changes to sh)
 should be pulled up to both NetBSD-6 and NetBSD-7 - it has been broken
 for 20+ years, and should finally get fixed everywhere.
 However, because of the other changes that have been made, the patch that
 fixed this problem will almost certainly not apply cleanly to the earlier
 versions.   The fix is identical though (it is just a half-line change), and
 if someone tells me what to do with it, I could easily supply a patch that
 would work on the older shell sources (or two, if that should happen to be
 needed - but I suspect probably not.)
