Can you give me something that will allow me to reproduce the problem
more easily?  I can't reproduce it with something like this:

        echo "bar()"$'\n'"{ echo in bar;"$'\n'"}"
        echo echo one
        echo echo two
        echo echo three
        echo echo inside
        echo type bar
        echo bar

source <(foo)
echo outside
type bar
echo $?

Does it take a script of a certain size to trigger the problem?  If the
problem is as you describe it should not work anywhere.

I happen to be using exactly the same release of MacOS X and kernel version
you are.
