I'm glad that git has this fixed. Well, then the actual problem is that it is
broken in release.
Even being gentoo user, I cannot install gnupg from git easily (there's no live
ebuild for gnupg yet). So users will suffer from this until you make next
release and distros maintainers update packages.
So regarding functional tests for shell utils... Any suggestion how to arrange
that? Or would you review whatever I come up with?
