Thanks. If starting with an escaped IFS, the CTLESC should already have 
been skipped before the if (maxargs == 1) check gets executed. That's 
done at the start of the outer loop, but is not visible in the patch 
because it's unmodified from the original code. Or did I misunderstand 
you here?

With the link sent by Martijn Dekker earlier in this thread:

 
<http://web.archive.org/web/20050414022354/http://www.research.att.com/~gsf/public/ifs.sh>

it gives a lot of failures:

# tests 6856 passed 1844 failed 5012

I'll look into it in more detail later, if no one beats me to it.

Cheers,
