I am running 4.6 from netgod's slink debs and I just switched my sh->ash
today and netscape started up fine.

But I found and filed a bash'ism bug against ipmasq.  That was fun
trying to figure that out when I couldn't even ping localhost after a
reboot to test the waters with ash.  Ipmasq has some 'function ....'
calls in the rules.
