There is no guarantee that a single commit fixes the issue you want to
have fixed, especially if it's not a problem that was identified the
same way. In this case, the commit Martijn references definitely fixes a
problem with `()' subshells initializing, but it is not identical to the
problem with the grep configure script (which fails running shell functions
in pipelines, which are run in subshells).

That's similar to the report Martijn cited, but not the same. The right
one is


and the right commit is


If you look at the changes in that commit, you see

+       - execute_subshell_builtin_or_function: call without_job_control even
+         if JOB_CONTROL is not defined. Similar to fix from 9/23.
+         Report from Martijn Dekker <address@hidden>

and you should be able to find the right chunk from execute_cmd.c that
mentions without_job_control().
