Sure enough it was another leak, hopefully this is the last one :)

    This is the symptom of another leak.  In this case evalbackcmd
    occurs in the middle of an expansion (as it should) but the forked
    child never clears the previous IFS state.
    
    This patch adds the missing ifsfree call.
    
    This wasn't as much of a problem as the previously discovered leaks
    since all it means is that the child gets to carry around the parent's
    expansion state and the child is usually short-lived.
