Thanks for the followup; that's an older version of bash, but no one else
has reported this bug with that version, so I'm wondering what else might
be the problem.  What does 'echo $BASH_VERSION' output (so we can
determine the patch level)?  Also, is /bin/sh a symlink to bash, or is it
some other shell?  Can you please also post the output of:

/bin/sh -vx tests/testsuite.dir/051/script

Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
