Something similar was reported once before, but appears to be irix-
specific. I do not have access to any Irix machines, and will need
someone else to debug this.
If you're willing to take a shot at it, you can try debugging with gdb
and putting a breakpoint in subst.c:extract_command_subst(). If you
elect to do so, please let me know what you find.
