Oops, indeed.  Damn /bin/sh!  This is difficult to fix.  In the meantime,
you can use "esac;".

Yes, put it inside quotes.  Otherwise code such as

     echo $z in
     ps | head

will also get the ) incorrectly marked as belonging to a case-pattern
(because the algorithm only looks back until the `in' not until the `case').

Again, this is difficult to fix.

This one should be easier to fix.

In any case, please don't wait for me to fix those bugs.  I may get around
to do it eventually, but that can be pretty damn far in the future.
