Actually, I saw this behaviour a couple of nights ago when I was working with
Corinna on her security patch. By the way, I think she has that problem
resolved. I sent her a strace of this bash freezing when started from sh
problem. It doesn't just freeze, it goes into an endless loop which is really
noticable in the strace file. This endless loop is IMO not a problem with ash
but a runtime problem.
