Yes - AIX - without UTF-8 is the exception for bash. I was not concerned
about the report.
I know that AIX is 'exceptional' :) pun intended.

OK. While - perhaps the root cause is differences in error-codes, or
something like that - and not to be overly concerned about (as I am not
with the UTF-8 'errors') I am concerned that 'make test' terminates at
this point - rather than continuing with the rest of the test suite.

I should have known that - but shell scripting is not my favorite
