all tests fail with eval: Bad substitution when /bin/sh == /bin/dash -- all pass when /bin/sh == /bin/bash

log from 2.7.5 shown and attached but 2.7.6 fails identically until shell changed

   GNU patch 2.7.5: tests/test-suite.log

/home/BWI/src/cygwin/patch/patch-2.7.5-1.x86_64/src/patch-2.7.5/tests/asymmetric-hunks: 1: eval: Bad substitution

(file #53572)

Wed 26 May 2021 02:49:42 PM UTC, original submission:  

in tests/test-lib.sh:

116 if test -z "`echo -n`"; then
117     if eval 'test -n "${BASH_LINENO[0]}" 2>/dev/null'; then
118         eval '

BASH_LINENO is a bash only variable. I think we should check bash environment before running tests.
