Shell commands show as error status in the build log


Hi, bit of an odd one.

Running a plan with a task of type Interpreter as Shell. Our script body for a simple test is;

#!/usr/bin/env bash
set -euxo pipefail

echo $?

which bash
echo $?


The log for for the above commands shows as error and for the life of us we cant work out why? We run bash in strict mode, but we've altered the set statement too, but no avail.

The above throws;


error 01-Nov-2019 10:56:07 + export
build 01-Nov-2019 10:56:07 declare -x IMAGE_ID="xxxxxxxxxxxxxx/something/someimage:sometag"
error 01-Nov-2019 10:56:07 + echo 0
build 01-Nov-2019 10:56:07 declare -x JAVA_HOME="/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle"
error 01-Nov-2019 10:56:07 + which bash
build 01-Nov-2019 10:56:07 0
01-Nov-2019 10:56:07 /bin/bash
build 01-Nov-2019 10:56:07 0


Any ideas why it's a status of error, even through exit codes are of value 0 and the export command and which bash command return valid values?
