In general, /bin/sh is not bash. When you have a shell syntax
question, you really need to test on other shells. I keep dash, posh,
ksh93, pdksh, and zsh around just for this purpose.

Those shells all agree with your finding in the present case, but I
note that I don't have a real Bourne shell handy, or the infamous
Solaris /bin/sh.
