Well thanks to a bug in Netscape, I went to its search page instead of
whatever I was trying to open, and the my cut-and-paste buffer happend
to have IFS code in it:


Not only does that show that Solaris 2.6's shell does not set IFS, it also
shows that the current autoconf breakage doesn't go back to 1999 as some
have claimed.

I guess this is what they call serendipity.
