Array expansions in scalar assignments

Hi, it looks like these expansions still aren't quite being delimited
by IFS consistently. Probably strangest of these is a4 where `$*`
doesn't agree with `${a[*]}`, and a3 vs. a4 where quoting modifies the
result. I would think bash should look like the ksh output with all
@'s space-separated and all *'s comma-separated.

This was essentially the same bug, though I didn't test typeset vs
plain assignments or quoting variations back then:
