Thanks vor your bug report! However it leaves some questions open:
Lenny, the current stable release, was shipped with version
3.6+debian-4, while 3.9.2+debian-2 is the version currently available in
Does the problem you reported also affect the Lenny's original version

As for the version in unstable: Starting with Debian Squeeze, dash is
an essential package, which means, that it will be present on all
systems and is not easy to remove. So, there's no bug in these version,
only in mixed systems.
So unless lenny's version is affected by this problem, I fear the only
thing we can do is to close that bug.
