I have a visceral nervousness when reading this code, from too much
unpleasant experience of bash's csh-style !history expansion.  Luckily
bash does not treat ! specially in the '-o sh' mode used by tests.

Does this feature work when running a test explicitly using
"bash <name of test>"?  That's something I do from time to time to
figure out whether a weird behavior is shell-specific.

If it works everywhere, this patch would help me conquer my fear of
exclamation points in git's tests, which would be a comfort to me and
a very good thing.
