I will look into this.  I expect it is a side-effect of the changes
to #!-processing or the changes to /bin/env which were done for
release 6.0.  I expect it is the parsing changes to #!-lines (in
shell scripts) much more than /bin/env, because all of the 6.0
changes to /bin/env were MFC'ed into 5.x-stable a long time ago.

Besides that, the change to #!-line parsing is known to be an
incompatible change.  That's why it was never MFC'ed.
