Incorrectly? Looks to me the same as with bash:
[16:24:40 tmp]$ printenv IFS
[16:24:46 tmp]$ bash -c 'echo x-${IFS}-x'
x- -x
[16:24:48 tmp]$ bash --version
GNU bash, version 2.05.0(1)-release (i386-pc-linux-gnu)

[16:27:28 tmp]$ 

Ah, something might be wrong with the above tests:
[16:35:41 tmp]$ set | grep IFS
IFS=$' \t\n'
[16:35:59 tmp]$
