Package: dash
Severity: important

The 'read' command seems to only read the first character and not the whole line.

Example / comparison with bash:

# /bin/dash
# read MAX </proc/sys/net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_max
# echo $MAX

# /bin/bash
# read MAX </proc/sys/net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_max
# echo $MAX
