Ah well, you're right.  It's the $(( ... )) stuff, that has been
introduced by Posix but is not available on Solaris' elderly /bin/sh.

However, without really running the script modified by your patch, I
couldn't figure out why you were using $(( )) at all.  After all,
there's no real arithmetic expression inside the parenthesis.  The
test command's -gt/-lt operators force their operands to be treated as
integer values anyway.
