I think this is fixed by workers/39019, but I did not add any tests that
use double-quoting.  Should there be some?

Agreed, but I'm still not sure the test suite covers that ...

} Hmm... I would guess that what's happened is without an IFS forced
} joining with a default separator fails, and because it didn't get joined
} we refuse to split it

To clarify, the above edge case was introduced by the (never-committed)
patch in 39009, and should have been avoided by the patch in 39019.

} I would think the most logical answer here is it should have been joined
} with no separator and then split, but I doubt this has ever been thought
} about before.

This is still broken after 39019 (sigh) because IFS= plus shwordsplit
implies that joining should not happen in other circumstances, and we
only split after joining, so that unintentionally bleeds into this.  I
thought I'd got it worked out and that the tests I added covered it,
but trying this specific example again still fails.  Back to prodding
at it, I guess.
