Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

Description:

foo=$(
    case $1 in
        *bar*)  echo 1;;
        *)      echo 0;;
    esac
)

echo $foo

This script works with FreeBSD sh (and is properly highlighted by VIM :) ),
but fails with bash:

address@hidden:~]$ bash case.sh 
case.sh: line 5: syntax error near unexpected token `;'
case.sh: line 5: `      *bar*)  echo 1;;'
