Recurring calls eat up memory

Dear libtool developers,

I installed yesterday OpenSuSE 11.1 and tried to use KDevelop (3.5.3  openSuSE) to create and compile a simple project. When KDevelop calls libtool to link the program, the computer begins to slow down due to massive memory consumption until it does not react anymore.

I tracked down the problem to the script "libtool" found in the projects "debug" or "optimized" directories, which I guess is produced by libtool. It seems that the script calls itself recurringly and produces more and more processes.

pstree delivers:

     |          |         |                `-sh---sh-+-sed
     |          |         |                          `-sh---sh-+-sed
     |          |         |                                    `-sh---sh-+-sed
     |          |         |                                              `-sh---sh-+-sed
     |          |         |                                                        `-sh---sh-+-sed
     |          |         |                                                                  `-sh---sh-+-sed
     |          |         |                                                                            `-sh---sh-+-sed
     |          |         |                                                                                      `-sh---sh-+-sed
     |          |         |                                                                                                `-sh---s+ and so on

There seems to be a problem with case sensitivity in the script with the "echo" program definition. Changing the script solved the problem:

instead of defining the "echo" as follows:

# An echo program that protects backslashes.
ECHO="printf %s\\n"

I used:

# An echo program that protects backslashes.
echo="printf %s\\n"
