I see no circumstance which would make b.sh invoke a.sh (and thus emit
"It's a.sh"). Are you sure these are the actual scripts and output?

On the other hand, if the output was "It's b.sh", this is compatible
with many historical versions of UNIX, which assumed /bin/sh to be the
script interpreter. On
2.6.28-16-generic #55-Ubuntu SMP i686 GNU/Linux I get successful output
for the following variants of "x.sh":

:
echo worked

and

#!
echo worked

and

#! ./x.sh
echo worked
