From the bash manpage, it would see that += is higher precedence

= and += have equal precedence. Associativity is right to left, as described in operator(7). x=1 occurs first.

Hmm... yeah I see that now...
manpage is a bit confusing having the word assignment
on a line lower than the rest (which includes assignment '=')

Well, that makes me feel better, as 2 looked more intuitive as I said
in the last note..
