Ah, true enough. :o

I maybe should get out of the habit of submitting brand-new patches on
the spur of the moment right before going offline for the weekend.

Still, implementation-defined behavior...
bash includes several things that shouldn't be builtins, though this
isn't one of them. e.g. the horrible `kill` implementation which should
always be disabled. coreutils/builtins clashes are so annoying. :(
