the first (exit -1) is not a bug, the correct syntax is 'exit -- -1',
as with most other POSIX commands. (Note that exit takes an integer
between 0 and 255, inclusive, nominally.)

The second is implemented since the pdksh → mksh migration.

guy. But he's always right! In every fsckin' situation, he's right. Even
with his deeply perverted taste in software and borked ambition towards
broken OSes - in the end, he's damn right about it :(! […] works in mksh
