Greetings, All!

In the attached script, that I always run using dash, the expansion is
supposed to strip leading/trailing spaces from provided parameter.

The upgrade that took place after which the expansion stopped working is

libsolv:   - dash- -> dash-0.5.12-1.any

Downgrading to restored the expected behavior.
I failed to find anything relevant in the dash 0.5.12 patch notes, but perhaps
community could help?

With best regards,
