Release Status: release

Description:
        'read' does not properly set variable when line ends with a
<space> character

Repeat-By:
        ~$ echo "foo " > bar
        ~$ read foo < bar
        ~$ echo "-$foo-"
        -foo-

        the output should of course be: -foo -

Fix:
        include end-of-line spaces in variables when reading a file
