Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  Scripts which source /etc/rc.d/functions MUST be bash. No exceptions.

Run commands:
cd /etc/rc.d/
grep -l '#!/bin/sh' *

And fix manually your scripts, that calls /etc/rc.d/functions :)

Small "patch" fixing that typo (from the duplicate issue)

There is no typo: <(list) is right (Process Substitution), while $(command) is (Command Substitution) two different things. See bash manual, experiment yourself ;)
