I tried to boot a deb-bootstrapped SPARC image. But the first executed script 
segfaults when executing another command in backticks. The same happens when 
executing the bash and inside the bash another command. When the other 
command exits the bash segfaults. Other shells like the csh or the tcsh don't 
suffer from this problem.

After replacing the bash in the image with a minimal bourne compatible shell 
qemu was able to execute all scripts in rcS.

Then I tried to track down this problem with gdb and strace. But 
unfortunately, both are segfaulting, too. This makes debugging somewhat 
harder... Now, I'll try to analyze the core files of the crashing programs to 
get an idea what's going wrong. Or do you have any idea? What's the 
difference between bash compared to other shells?

Strange. I started qemu with "-cdrom /dev/cdrom" and could see all contents 
without a problem. What exactly did you try?

OK, have a look at the attached patch.

Yes, I'll try this in the next patch :-)
