read in sh scripts (b18)

While testing some shell scripts under b18 I find that

echo -n 'enter yes/no:'
read answer
echo $answer
echo -n 'enter yes/no:'
read answer
echo $answer

skips the second read.

It look too much like a FAQ to me like tty mode, buffering or 
a cr/lf issue that I can't believe it's a bug.
