Even with this patch I notice that 005 fails, 007 hangs, mkfs fails in
015 and 016 because of some kind of parameter passing problem
fail, and and all of these work by specifying /bin/bash rather than

I haven't got any further than this - it's painfully slow having to
test them one at a time because I'm getting lots of failures since
upgrading my test box from xfsprogs 3.0.4 to 3.1.0 this morning as
well as to the latest debian unstable.

Right now, considering the apparent widespread dependency on bash in
these test scripts, I'm proposing that we just change every single
test to run /bin/bash and hence avoid all these problems without
needing extra changes to the tests.
