Shell script using a pipe command stops without error after upgrade to ksh version ksh-20120801-10.el6.x86_64

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • We have a shell script which was executed w/o any issues on ksh-20100621-16.el6.x86_64. But the same script doesn't get executed and abort silently and logged in ksh shell hangs. Reverting ksh version to ksh-20100621-16 works fine again.
