Hi Laurent,

Note there are two '\\' before ${TESTING}
and TESTING is defined as TESTING="#testing" would be in a regular
shell, I had to use a backslash to escape #

Hope the following helps:

If I use just one backslash, it works. If I use two - segfaults. If I
use three backslashes, it also segfaults. If I use four or five
backslashes it works. Segfaults with six backslashes.

Yes, these are the latest skalibs and execline from the git on a
