Thanks -- and including coreutils, I guess?  Or are there other
workarounds or solutions to your problem than this fix?

I brought this up on the gnulib list:

If gnulib has a syntax-check rule for this problem, it will get fixed
in many more upstream projects indirectly.  I'm a bit concerned that
there may be disagreement that your suggestion actually is the best
recommended general solution to the problem, but we'll see what the
response is.
