As reported in bug 193055, some versions of MKS shell have a problem with the construct cat somefile | while read var1 var2 var3; do .....; done The afflicted shells only read the first line of piped input. The fix is to change all those constructs to instead look like this: while read var1 var2 var3; do .....; done < somefile That has already been done to most, but not all, NSS test scripts. The shell scripts in nss/test/cipher need this treatment. Patch forthcoming.
