I've already seen such messages very often on all Linux kernels I've ever
used. I assumed it was a bash-1.14 problem and when I tried out bash-2.0
it indeed seemed to go away.
I could never consistently reproduce it, but my boot scripts use $(cmd)
*very* extensively and they give this message fairly often.
