Bash Version: 2.04
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

Description:
        very strange argument splitting example.
        Saw this in man-1.5i configuration.
        This works correctly on:
                bash1
                ksh (on solaris 2.7)  (not sure which one)
                sh  (on on solaris 2.7)
        This doesn't work with:
                bash2 (tried 2.04 and 2.05)
                pdksh

Repeat-By:
IFS=":$IFS"
FOO=/fee:/fi:/fo:/fum
for i in /bin:/usr/bin/:/usr/ucb:$FOO
do
        case $i in
                /*)
                        echo $i
                        ;;
        esac
done


On sh on solaris, I get:
:1 address@hidden; sh ./test.shell 
/bin
/usr/bin/
/usr/ucb
/fee
/fi
/fo
/fum

With bash2 (.04|.05)
:1 address@hidden; bash ./test.shell 
/bin /usr/bin/ /usr/ucb /fee
/fi
/fo
/fum
