My prediction is that this series is generated by running checkbashism over
the fragments, it fires a false-positive here (from memory because it
thinks it is processing a bash glob or something, not grep regex).

Note that I just submitted my verify-bashism script which has a whitelist
for things - such as use of command - which whilst not in POSIX are in fact
in bash/dash/ash so for all intents and purposes will work.
