Double Quota Bug

We are running RedHat Linux 7.1 with bash 2.04-21.  There is a bug somewhere
that prevents a Perl script from passing a double quote character to the
shell (even with a preceeding backslash character) using Perl's backticks
command (qx/ /).  At first we suspected the Perl interpreter but the script
works fine if we change the Linux /bin/sh link to ash instead of bash.

The Perl script has worked fine for over a year with RedHat 6.2 and bash
