Created attachment 3613
  --> https://bugs.busybox.net/attachment.cgi?id=3613
adds test for ${1+"$@"}

We have some shell scripts that needs to be compatible among many shells, and
we use ${1+"$@"} instead of "$@" in some wrapper script for the reasons
described here:

Now, busybox ash and hush both interpret it differenly than bash. I tried with
the git HEAD.

$ echo 'for x in ${1+"$@"}; do echo $x; done' > testscript
$ ./hush testscript "a b"
$ bash testscript "a b"
a b

$ ./hush -v
BusyBox v1.20.0.git (2011-09-23 11:11:24 CEST) multi-call binary.

I haven't been able to find what the POSIX standard says about ${1+"$@"}, so
please close the bug report if you believe it is non-standard behaviour.
