The match was unintentional, but has now been made explicit.  Commit e2051a61.  Thanks for reporting.

Realized there are probably more scripts out there that use "#!/bin/env sh" or something like that and they won't match anymore either.

I'm working on an init script for an initramfs file using busybox. As such, the shebang line is "#!/bin/busybox sh". The regex match in sh.nanorc was changed and a "/" was added before "(*)sh" so it no longer matches.
Maybe it wasn't intended to match before, but it did.
I know this isn't a huge deal.. just thought people should be aware of Unintended Consequences.
