I don't know if it fails or not, but if it does this is not the reason.  
/bin/sh most certainly is not /bin/csh; if it were, the system would not boot 
given that all the rc start-up scripts are written in Bourne shell.

OTOH, /bin/csh and /bin/tcsh are identical:

$ freebsd-version -uk
$ ls -li /bin/*sh    
108 -r-xr-xr-x  2 root  wheel   382368 Nov 11 15:03 /bin/csh*
118 -r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel   142184 Nov 11 15:03 /bin/sh*
108 -r-xr-xr-x  2 root  wheel   382368 Nov 11 15:03 /bin/tcsh*
