build hangs when attempting to compile shadow

Description

When attempting to build shadow using the OpenWrt trunk in Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit, it appears that the build process is spawning an infinite number of bash and sed processes. The effect becomes noticeable when the processes begin using up my swap space. Eventually, the entire system becomes unresponsive and has to be forced shut down.

Here are the steps to reproduce the problem:

  1. svn co svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/trunk
  2. cd trunk
  3. make package/symlinks
  4. make menuconfig (make sure Utilities > shadow is set as built-in)
  5. make V=99

Eventually, you should see that the build hangs when attempting to compile a source file belonging to the shadow utilities.

Attached are the build log, the make config, and the output of ps. As you can tell in the output of ps, the bash and sed processes go on ad infinitum.

Could be fixed with r24393, can you test please?

I updated to r24394, and the build no longer hangs. I guess this can be confirmed as fixed.
