I know Rashi says it's like "beshegam" with a segol, and then explains
it as "bishvil shegam". And maybe the Torah contracts "asher" only
when sandwitched after a be-? It would explain the uniqueness.
But I find Ibn Ezra's comparison to the shin in shekhakha (in "ashrei
ha'am shekakha lo") more compelling, and the Ramban did too.
The Netziv has the shin as part of the shoresh, as in "mishagmaso".
As RJFS writes, it's "one *possible* exception".
