You're probably right.  I run into enough problems with 'dash' as
/bin/sh that I always have to disable it early after a new install.
In particular, an third-party embedded linux kernel build script fails
in cryptic ways with dash.   But it is probably the third-party's poor
understanding of POSIX shell which is to blame.

I think git's 'make test' previously would also fail under dash, but
it seems to be happy with it atm.
