Is there a version of bash that *doesn't*? My testing indicates that
the following command
for x in $nothing_here; do echo "$x"; done
works just fine (does nothing, and produces no errors) in bash 1.14 (the
oldest I have available) and in HP-UX's /sbin/sh (the oldest traditional
Bourne shell I have available), as well as dash 0.5.2. I couldn't find
any shell where it failed.
The syntax error quoted above probably indicates a problem earlier in the
script, which simply didn't show up until line 19396.
