Please don't assume that I have assumed something strange.  To begin
with, you didn't provide the script `shellbug', so something needs to
be assumed anyway.  Since it seems you are aware that your original
post would be unclear and confuse others, you could have just included
the contents of the file `shellbug'.  Anyway, I did NOT assume that
you have literally written broken quoting like

  separator2(octal escape)=\057

I assumed that you have written like


because otherwise, it doesn't work with ksh93 either.

To explain it in more detail, first, these parameter expansions work
for me with separator1='/'.  The pattern that you constructed from
separator2='\057' is just not supported by Bash.  Next, you specify
exactly the same script `shellbug' to both Bash and ksh93, so I could
assume that you are missing the Bash-specific `shopt -s extglob' in
the script because otherwise, ksh93 would have complained it.  That is
all what I can guess from your original post.
