Well, this certainly appears to be your problem. 

What exactly are you trying to accomplish with this snippet? It certainly 
doesn't look like a normal thing to do.

Also, do you have the same problem if you use #!/bin/sh instead of 
#!/bin/bash? You mentioned wanting to be portable, so that's a good idea
