Agreed. Within the Debian world, dash has redefined test rather
than building in test.  Therefore, within the Debian world, dash
is not Posix compliant.  Within the Debian world, this is a dash
bug.  Possible solutions include Debian-specific patches to either
make dash's test compatible or to disable dash's incompatible test.
