        I'd say eval "{" should have non zero exit status..
        Maybe it should behave like this function and return exit status 1 ?

        eval(){ # does not work in sh
          e="$(type eval | { read; while read line; do echo $line; done })" # 
get this fuction text
          unset eval;             # unset this function
          local evalSucc="failure"
          eval "evalSucc=ok;""$1"
          eval "$e"               # define this function again
          [ $evalSucc = "failure" ] && return 1
