Summary: The GNU Bourne-Again Shell
Bash is an sh-compatible command interpreter that executes commands
read from standard input or from a file.  Bash incorporates useful
features from the Korn and C shells (ksh and csh).  Bash is intended to
be a conformant implementation of the IEEE Posix Shell and Tools
specification (IEEE Working Group 1003.2).






* Tue Apr 23 2019 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Add official patch bash50-004
    * In bash-5.0, the `wait' builtin without arguments waits for all children of the
      shell. This includes children it `inherited' at shell invocation time. This
      patch modifies the behavior to not wait for these inherited children, some
      of which might be long-lived.
  - Add official patch bash50-005
    * In certain cases, bash optimizes out a fork() call too early and prevents
      traps from running.
  - Add official patch bash50-006
    * Bash-5.0 did not build successfully if SYSLOG_HISTORY was defined without
      also defining SYSLOG_SHOPT.
  - Add official patch bash50-007
    * Running `exec' when job control was disabled, even temporarily, but after it
      had been initialized, could leave the terminal in the wrong process group for
      the executed process.
* Thu Apr 04 2019 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Add temporary fix from upstream for boo#1128936
* Thu Mar 21 2019 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Add patch assignment-preceding-builtin.patch from upstream

  - Add upstream patches bash50-001 and bash50-002
* Wed Jan 09 2019 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Update to bash 5.0 (final)
    a. Tilde expansion isn't performed on indexed array subscripts, even for
      backwards compatibility.
    b. The shell doesn't exit in posix mode if the eval builtin gets a parse
      error when run by the command builtin.
    c. Fixed a bug that caused a shell comment in an alias to not find the end
      of the alias properly.
    d. Reverted a change from April, 2018 that caused strings containing
      backslashes to be flagged as glob patterns.
  - Modify patches
    * bash-2.03-manual.patch
    * bash-4.3-loadables.dif
    * bash-5.0.dif
* Fri Dec 21 2018 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Update to bash 5.0 rc1
    a. Fix to initial word completion detection code.
    b. Fixed a bug that caused issues with assignment statements containing ^A in
      the value assigned when IFS contains ^A.
    c. Added a fallback to fnmatch() when strcoll can't correctly deal with
      bracket expression character equivalence classes.
    d. Fixed a bug that caused $BASH_COMMAND to contain the trap handler command
      when running a trap handler containing [[ or (( commands.
    e. Fixed a bug that caused nameref assignments in the temporary environment
      to potentially create variables with invalid names.
    f. Fixed a bug that caused `local -' to turn off alias expansion in scripts.
    g. Fixed a parser issue with a command string containing EOF after an invalid
      command as an argument to a special builtin not causing a posix-mode shell
      to exit.
    h. Made a slight change to the FNV-1 string hash algorithm used for associative
      arrays (corrected the initial seed).
    a. The `select' command now supports command forms without a word list
      following `in'.
* Thu Nov 29 2018 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Update to bash 5.0 beta2
    ii. Associative and indexed arrays now allow subscripts consisting solely of
    jj. `checkwinsize' is now enabled by default.
    kk. The `localvar_unset' shopt option is now visible and documented.
    ll. The `progcomp_alias' shopt option is now visible and documented.
    mm. The signal name processing code now understands `SIGRTMIN+n' all the way
      up to SIGRTMAX.
    nn. There is a new `seq' loadable builtin.
    oo. Trap execution now honors the (internal) max invocations of `eval', since
      traps are supposed to be executed as if using `eval'.
    pp. The $_ variable doesn't change when the shell executes a command that forks.
    qq. The `kill' builtin now supports -sSIGNAME and -nSIGNUM, even though
      conforming applications aren't supposed to use them.
    rr. POSIX mode now enables the `shift_verbose' option.

* Thu Sep 20 2018 Dr. Werner Fink <>
  - Update to bash 5.0 beta
    a. The `wait' builtin can now wait for the last process substitution created.
    b. There is an EPOCHSECONDS variable, which expands to the time in seconds
      since the Unix epoch.
    c. There is an EPOCHREALTIME variable, which expands to the time in seconds
      since the Unix epoch with microsecond granularity.
    d. New loadable builtins: rm, stat, fdflags.
    e. BASH_ARGV0: a new variable that expands to $0 and sets $0 on assignment.
    f. When supplied a numeric argument, the shell-expand-line bindable readline
      command does not perform quote removal and suppresses command and process
    g. `history -d' understands negative arguments: negative arguments offset from
      the end of the history list.
    h. The `name' argument to the `coproc' reserved word now undergoes word
      expansion, so unique coprocs can be created in loops.
    i. A nameref name resolution loop in a function now resolves to a variable by
      that name in the global scope.
    j. The `wait' builtin now has a `-f' option, which signfies to wait until the
      specified job or process terminates, instead of waiting until it changes
    k. There is a define in config-top.h that allows the shell to use a static
      value for $PATH, overriding whatever is in the environment at startup, for
      use by the restricted shell.
    l. Process substitution does not inherit the `v' option, like command
    m. If a non-interactive shell with job control enabled detects that a foreground
      job died due to SIGINT, it acts as if it received the SIGINT.
    n. The SIGCHLD trap is run once for each exiting child process even if job
      control is not enabled when the shell is in Posix mode.
    o. A new shopt option: localvar_inherit; if set, a local variable inherits the
      value of a variable with the same name at the nearest preceding scope.
    p. `bind -r' now checks whether a key sequence is bound before binding it to
      NULL, to avoid creating keymaps for a multi-key sequence.
    q. A numeric argument to the line editing `operate-and-get-next' command
      specifies which history entry to use.
    r. The positional parameters are now assigned before running the shell startup
      files, so startup files can use $@.
    s. There is a compile-time option that forces the shell to disable the check
      for an inherited OLDPWD being a directory.
    t. The `history' builtin can now delete ranges of history entries using
      `-d start-end'.
    u. The `vi-edit-and-execute-command' bindable readline command now puts readline
      back in vi insertion mode after executing commands from the edited file.
    v. The command completion code now matches aliases and shell function names
      case-insensitively if the readline completion-ignore-case variable is set.
    w. There is a new `assoc_expand_once' shell option that attempts to expand
      associative array subscripts only once.
    x. The shell only sets up BASH_ARGV and BASH_ARGC at startup if extended
      debugging mode is active. The old behavior of unconditionally setting them
      is available as part of the shell compatibility options.
    y. The `umask' builtin now allows modes and masks greater than octal 777.
    z. The `times' builtin now honors the current locale when printing a decimal
    aa. There is a new (disabled by default, undocumented) shell option to enable
      and disable sending history to syslog at runtime.
    bb. Bash no longer allows variable assignments preceding a special builtin that
      changes variable attributes to propagate back to the calling environment
      unless the compatibility level is 44 or lower.
    cc. You can set the default value for $HISTSIZE at build time in config-top.h.
    dd. The `complete' builtin now accepts a -I option that applies the completion
      to the initial word on the line.
    ee. The internal bash malloc now uses mmap (if available) to satisfy requests
      greater than 128K bytes, so free can use mfree to return the pages to the
    ff. The shell doesn't automatically set BASH_ARGC and BASH_ARGV at startup
      unless it's in debugging mode, as the documentation has always said, but
      will dynamically create them if a script references them at the top level
      without having enabled debugging mode.
    gg. The localvar_inherit option will not attempt to inherit a value from a
      variable of an incompatible type (indexed vs. associative arrays, for
    hh. The `globasciiranges' option is now enabled by default; it can be set to
      off by default at configuration time.

* Sat Jun 02 2018
  - Add patch 20, 21, 22 and 23 to bash-4.4-patches.tar.bz2
    * 20: In circumstances involving long-running scripts that create
      and reap many processes, it is possible for the hash table bash
      uses to store exit statuses from asynchronous processes to
      develop loops. This patch fixes the loop causes and adds code
      to detect any future loops.
    * 21: A SIGINT received inside a SIGINT trap handler can possibly
      cause the shell to loop.
    * 22: There are cases where a failing readline command (e.g.,
      delete-char at the end of a line) can cause a multi-character
      key sequence to `back up' and attempt to re-read some of the
      characters in the sequence.
    * 23: When sourcing a file from an interactive shell, setting the
      SIGINT handler to the default and typing ^C will cause the
      shell to exit.

  - Add patch 19 to bash-4.4-patches.tar.bz2
    * With certain values for PS1, especially those that wrap onto
      three or more lines, readline will miscalculate the number of
      invisible characters, leading to crashes and core dumps.
* Tue Jan 30 2018
  - Add patches 13-18 to bash-4.4-patches.tar.bz2
    * 13: If a here-document contains a command substitution, the
      command substitution can get access to the file descriptor used
      to write the here-document.
    * 14: Under some circumstances, functions that return via the
      `return' builtin do not clean up memory they allocated to keep
      track of FIFOs.
    * 15: Process substitution can leak internal quoting to the
      parser in the invoked subshell.
    * 16: Bash can perform trap processing while reading command
      substitution output instead of waiting until the command
    * 17: There is a memory leak when `read -e' is used to read a
      line using readline.
    * 18: Under certain circumstances (e.g., reading from /dev/zero),
      read(2) will not return -1 even when interrupted by a signal.
      The read builtin needs to check for signals in this case.

* Mon Jan 30 2017
  - Add upstream patch readline70-002 which replace old one
    There is a race condition in add_history() that can be triggered by a fatal
    signal arriving between the time the history length is updated and the time
    the history list update is completed. A later attempt to reference an
    invalid history entry can cause a crash.
  - Add upstream patch readline70-003
    Readline-7.0 uses pselect(2) to allow readline to handle signals that do not
    interrupt read(2), such as SIGALRM, before reading another character.  The
    signal mask used in the pselect call did not take into account signals the
    calling application blocked before calling readline().
* Fri Jan 27 2017
  - Add upstream patch bash44-006
    Out-of-range negative offsets to popd can cause the shell to crash
    attempting to free an invalid memory block.
  - Remove patch popd-offset-overflow.patch to use bash44-006
  - Add upstream patch bash44-007
    When performing filename completion, bash dequotes the directory
    name being completed, which can result in match failures and
    potential unwanted expansion.
  - Duplicate bash44-007 as readline70-002 as it seems to be missed
  - Add upstream patch bash44-008
    Under certain circumstances, bash will evaluate arithmetic
    expressions as part of reading an expression token even when
    evaluation is suppressed. This happens while evaluating a
    conditional expression and skipping over the failed branch of the
  - Add upstream patch bash44-009
    There is a race condition in add_history() that can be triggered
    by a fatal signal arriving between the time the history length
    is updated and the time the history list update is completed.
    A later attempt to reference an invalid history entry can cause
    a crash.
  - Add upstream patch bash44-010
    Depending on compiler optimizations and behavior, the `read'
    builtin may not save partial input when a timeout occurs.
  - Add upstream patch bash44-011
    Subshells begun to run command and process substitutions may
    attempt to set the terminal's process group to an incorrect
    value if they receive a fatal signal.  This depends on the
    behavior of the process that starts the shell.
  - Add upstream patch bash44-012
    When -N is used, the input is not supposed to be split using
    $IFS, but leading and trailing IFS whitespace was still removed.
* Thu Jan 19 2017
  - Remove -L option on screen call dues API change, now we depend
    on environment variables only.
* Fri Dec 09 2016
  - Enable -fprofile-correction to cover misleading profile created due
    to terminating_signal which does not return.
* Mon Nov 28 2016
  -  Add upstream patch popd-offset-overflow.patch to fix boo#1010845
    CVE-2016-9401: bash: popd controlled free (Segmentation fault)
    Remark: this is a simple Segmentation fault, no security risk
* Thu Nov 17 2016
  - Add upstream patch bash44-001
    Bash-4.4 changed the way the history list is initially allocated to reduce
    the number of reallocations and copies.  Users who set HISTSIZE to a very
    large number to essentially unlimit the size of the history list will get
    memory allocation errors
  - Add upstream patch bash44-002
    Bash-4.4 warns when discarding NUL bytes in command substitution output
    instead of silently dropping them.  This patch changes the warnings from
    one per NUL byte encountered to one warning per command substitution.
  - Drop no-null-warning.patch as bash44-002 is official replacement
  - Add upstream patch bash44-003
    Specially-crafted input, in this case an incomplete pathname expansion
    bracket expression containing an invalid collating symbol, can cause the
    shell to crash.
  - Add upstream patch bash44-004
    There is a race condition that can result in bash referencing freed memory
    when freeing data associated with the last process substitution.
  - Add upstream patch bash44-005
    Under certain circumstances, a simple command is optimized to eliminate a
    fork, resulting in an EXIT trap not being executed. (boo#1008459)
  - Add upstream patch readline70-001
    Readline-7.0 changed the way the history list is initially allocated to reduce
    the number of reallocations and copies.  Users who set the readline
    history-size variable to a very large number to essentially unlimit the size
    of the history list will get memory allocation errors

    * New application-callable function: rl_pending_signal(): returns the signal
      number of any signal readline has caught but not yet handled.
    * New application-settable variable: rl_persistent_signal_handlers: if set
    to a non-zero value, readline will enable the readline-6.2 signal handler
    behavior in callback mode: handlers are installed when
    rl_callback_handler_install is called and removed removed when a complete
    line has been read.

    may source other files as well even if the bash does not.
    Therefore modify patch bash-4.1-bash.bashrc.dif (bsc#959755)
* Thu Jul 14 2016
  - Update bash 4.4 beta 2
    * Value conversions (arithmetic expansions, case modification, etc.) now
      happen when assigning elements of an array using compound assignment.
    * There is a new option settable in config-top.h that makes multiple
      directory arguments to `cd' a fatal error.
    * Bash now uses mktemp() when creating internal temporary files; it produces
      a warning at build time on many Linux systems.
  - Update to readline library 7.0 beta 2 (not enabled as not standalone)
    * The default binding for ^W in vi mode now uses word boundaries specified
      by Posix (vi-unix-word-rubout is bindable command name).
    * rl_clear_visible_line: new application-callable function; clears all
      screen lines occupied by the current visible readline line.
    * rl_tty_set_echoing: application-callable function that controls whether
      or not readline thinks it is echoing terminal output.
    * Handle >| and strings of digits preceding and following redirection
      specifications as single tokens when tokenizing the line for history
    * Fixed a bug with displaying completions when the prefix display length
      is greater than the length of the completions to be displayed.
    * The :p history modifier now applies to the entire line, so any expansion
      specifying :p causes the line to be printed instead of expanded.
* Tue Mar 08 2016
  - Update bash 4.4 release candidate 1
    * There is now a settable configuration #define that will cause the shell
      to exit if the shell is running setuid without the -p option and setuid
      to the real uid fails.
    * Command and process substitutions now turn off the `-v' option when
      executing, as other shells seem to do.
    * The default value for the `checkhash' shell option may now be set at
      compile time with a #define.
    * The `mapfile' builtin now has a -d option to use an arbitrary character
      as the record delimiter, and a -t option  to strip the delimiter as
      supplied with -d.
    * The maximum number of nested recursive calls to `eval' is now settable in
      config-top.h; the default is no limit.
    * The `-p' option to declare and similar builtins will display attributes for
      named variables even when those variables have not been assigned values
      (which are technically unset).
    * The maximum number of nested recursive calls to `source' is now settable
      in config-top.h; the default is no limit.
    * All builtin commands recognize the `--help' option and print a usage
    * Bash does not allow function names containing `/' and `=' to be exported.
    * The `ulimit' builtin has new -k (kqueues) and -P (pseudoterminals) options.
    * The shell now allows `time ; othercommand' to time null commands.
    * There is a new `--enable-function-import' configuration option to allow
      importing shell functions from the environment; import is enabled by
    * `printf -v var ""' will now set `var' to the empty string, as if `var=""'
      had been executed.
    * GLOBIGNORE, the pattern substitution word expansion, and programmable
      completion match filtering now honor the value of the `nocasematch' option.
    * There is a new ${parameter@spec} family of operators to transform the
      value of `parameter'.
    * Bash no longer attempts to perform compound assignment if a variable on the
      rhs of an assignment statement argument to `declare' has the form of a
      compound assignment (e.g., w='(word)' ; declare foo=$w); compound
      assignments are accepted if the variable was already declared as an array,
      but with a warning.
    * The declare builtin no longer displays array variables using the compound
      assignment syntax with quotes; that will generate warnings when re-used as
      input, and isn't necessary.
    * Executing the rhs of && and || will no longer cause the shell to fork if
      it's not necessary.
    * The `local' builtin takes a new argument: `-', which will cause it to save
      and the single-letter shell options and restore their previous values at
      function return.
    * `complete' and `compgen' have a new `-o nosort' option, which forces
      readline to not sort the completion matches.
    * Bash now allows waiting for the most recent process substitution, since it
      appears as $!.
    * The `unset' builtin now unsets a scalar variable if it is subscripted with
      a `0', analogous to the ${var[0]} expansion.
    * `set -i' is no longer valid, as in other shells.
    * BASH_SUBSHELL is now updated for process substitution and group commands
      in pipelines, and is available with the same value when running any exit
    * Bash now checks $INSIDE_EMACS as well as $EMACS when deciding whether or
      not bash is being run in a GNU Emacs shell window.
    * Bash now treats SIGINT received when running a non-builtin command in a
      loop the way it has traditionally treated running a builtin command:
      running any trap handler and breaking out of the loop.
    * New variable: EXECIGNORE; a colon-separate list of patterns that will
      cause matching filenames to be ignored when searching for commands.
    * Aliases whose value ends in a shell metacharacter now expand in a way to
      allow them to be `pasted' to the next token, which can potentially change
      the meaning of a command (e.g., turning `&' into `&&').
    * `make install' now installs the example loadable builtins and a set of
      bash headers to use when developing new loadable builtins.
    * `enable -f' now attempts to call functions named BUILTIN_builtin_load when
      loading BUILTIN, and BUILTIN_builtin_unload when deleting it.  This allows
      loadable builtins to run initialization and cleanup code.
    * There is a new BASH_LOADABLES_PATH variable containing a list of directories
      where the `enable -f' command looks for shared objects containing loadable
    * The `complete_fullquote' option to `shopt' changes filename completion to
      quote all shell metacharacters in filenames and directory names.
    * The `kill' builtin now has a `-L' option, equivalent to `-l', for
      compatibility with Linux standalone versions of kill.
    * BASH_COMPAT and FUNCNEST can be inherited and set from the shell's initial
    * inherit_errexit: a new `shopt' option that, when set, causes command
      substitutions to inherit the -e option.  By default, those subshells disable
    - e.  It's enabled as part of turning on posix mode.
    * New prompt string: PS0.  Expanded and displayed by interactive shells after
      reading a complete command but before executing it.
    * Interactive shells now behave as if SIGTSTP/SIGTTIN/SIGTTOU are set to SIG_DFL
      when the shell is started, so they are set to SIG_DFL in child processes.
    * Posix-mode shells now allow double quotes to quote the history expansion
    * OLDPWD can be inherited from the environment if it names a directory.
    * Shells running as root no longer inherit PS4 from the environment, closing a
      security hole involving PS4 expansion performing command substitution.
    * If executing an implicit `cd' when the `autocd' option is set, bash will now
      invoke a function named `cd' if one exists before executing the `cd' builtin.
  - Update to readline library 7.0 release candidate 1
    * The history truncation code now uses the same error recovery mechansim as
      the history writing code, and restores the old version of the history file
      on error.  The error recovery mechanism handles symlinked history files.
    * There is a new bindable variable, `enable-bracketed-paste', which enables
      support for a terminal's bracketed paste mode.
    * The editing mode indicators can now be strings and are user-settable
      (new `emacs-mode-string', `vi-cmd-mode-string' and `vi-ins-mode-string'
      variables).  Mode strings can contain invisible character sequences.
      Setting mode strings to null strings restores the defaults.
    * Prompt expansion adds the mode string to the last line of a multi-line
      prompt (one with embedded newlines).
    * There is a new bindable variable, `colored-completion-prefix', which, if
      set, causes the common prefix of a set of possible completions to be
      displayed in color.
    * There is a new bindable command `vi-yank-pop', a vi-mode version of emacs-
      mode yank-pop.
    * The redisplay code underwent several efficiency improvements for multibyte
    * The insert-char function attempts to batch-insert all pending typeahead
      that maps to self-insert, as long as it is coming from the terminal.
    * rl_callback_sigcleanup: a new application function that can clean up and
      unset any state set by readline's callback mode.  Intended to be used
      after a signal.
    * If an incremental search string has its last character removed with DEL, the
      resulting empty search string no longer matches the previous line.
    * If readline reads a history file that begins with `#' (or the value of
      the history comment character) and has enabled history timestamps, the history
      entries are assumed to be delimited by timestamps.  This allows multi-line
      history entries.
    * Readline now throws an error if it parses a key binding without a terminating
      `:' or whitespace.
  - Remove patches which are upstream solved
  - Rename patches
    bash-4.3.dif become bash-4.4.dif
    readline-6.3.dif become readline-7.0.dif
  - Refresh other patches as well
* Mon Oct 19 2015
  - Define the USE_MKTEMP and USE_MKSTEMP cpp macros as the
    implementation is already there.
  - Add patch bash-4.3-pathtemp.patch to allow root to clear the
    file systems.  Otherwise the completion does not work if /tmp
    if full (ENOSPC for here documents)
* Fri Oct 16 2015
  - Remove --hash-size options as there is no any change in the final
    binary nor library anymore
* Mon Aug 31 2015
  - Add upstream patch bash43-039
    Using the output of `declare -p' when run in a function can result in variables
    that are invisible to `declare -p'.  This problem occurs when an assignment
    builtin such as `declare' receives a quoted compound array assignment as one of
    its arguments.
  - Add upstream patch bash43-040
    There is a memory leak that occurs when bash expands an array reference on
    the rhs of an assignment statement.
  - Add upstream patch bash43-041
    There are several out-of-bounds read errors that occur when completing command
    lines where assignment statements appear before the command name.  The first
    two appear only when programmable completion is enabled; the last one only
    happens when listing possible completions.
  - Add upstream patch bash43-042
    There is a problem when parsing command substitutions containing `case'
    commands within pipelines that causes the parser to not correctly identify
    the end of the command substitution.
* Wed Jul 01 2015
  - add bash-4.3-perl522.patch to fix texi2html for perl 5.22
    (defined(@array) has been deprecated since at least 2012)
* Thu May 28 2015
  - Add upstream patch bash43-034
    If neither the -f nor -v options is supplied to unset, and a name argument is
    found to be a function and unset, subsequent name arguments are not treated as
    variables before attempting to unset a function by that name.
  - Add upstream patch bash43-035
    A locale with a long name can trigger a buffer overflow and core dump.  This
    applies on systems that do not have locale_charset in libc, are not using
    GNU libiconv, and are not using the libintl that ships with bash in lib/intl.
  - Add upstream patch bash43-036
    When evaluating and setting integer variables, and the assignment fails to
    create a variable (for example, when performing an operation on an array
    variable with an invalid subscript), bash attempts to dereference a null
    pointer, causing a segmentation violation.
  - Add upstream patch bash43-037
    If an associative array uses `@' or `*' as a subscript, `declare -p' produces
    output that cannot be reused as input.
  - Add upstream patch bash43-038
    There are a number of instances where `time' is not recognized as a reserved
    word when the shell grammar says it should be.
* Mon May 18 2015
  - move info deletion to %preun sections
* Wed Mar 04 2015
  - bash-4.3-loadables.dif: One more warning fixed, in
  - bash-4.3-loadables.dif: Reverted one warning fix, which was
    introducing another warning and possibly a bug.
* Wed Mar 04 2015
  - bash-4.3-loadables.dif: Split changes to shell.h to a separate
    patch "bash-4.3-include-unistd.dif", as the loadables build just
    fine without these changes.
  - bash-4.3-loadables.dif: Drop all header file inclusion fixups,
    upstream fixed the problem differently 5 years ago.
* Wed Feb 18 2015
  - Do not restart all signal handlers for bash 4.3 as this breaks
    trap handler in subshells waotiug for a process
* Fri Jan 16 2015
  - Remove -DMUST_UNBLOCK_CHLD(=1) as this breaks waitchild(2) on linux
* Fri Jan 09 2015
  - Add upstream patch bash43-031
    The new nameref assignment functionality introduced in bash-4.3 did not perform
    enough validation on the variable value and would create variables with
    invalid names.
  - Add upstream patch bash43-032
    When bash is running in Posix mode, it allows signals -- including SIGCHLD --
    to interrupt the `wait' builtin, as Posix requires.  However, the interrupt
    causes bash to not run a SIGCHLD trap for all exited children.  This patch
    fixes the issue and restores the documented behavior in Posix mode.
  - Add upstream patch bash43-033
    Bash does not clean up the terminal state in all cases where bash or
    readline  modifies it and bash is subsequently terminated by a fatal signal.
    This happens when the `read' builtin modifies the terminal settings, both
    when readline is active and when it is not.  It occurs most often when a script
    installs a trap that exits on a signal without re-sending the signal to itself.
* Wed Dec 03 2014
  - Fix the sed command that fixes up the patch headers. It was
    printing a duplicate header line, which suprisingly did not
    confuse patch, but could in the future.
  - Fix all patches that had the duplicate header line issue.
* Tue Nov 04 2014
  - Use tail command to follow run-tests instead of a simpe cat command
* Fri Oct 24 2014
  - Really remove obsolete patches
* Fri Oct 24 2014
  - Skip autoconf on OS 10.2 or older
* Wed Oct 22 2014
  - Avoid fdupes on SLES-10
* Wed Oct 22 2014
  - Bump bash version to 4.3
* Tue Oct 21 2014
  - Allow building on targets from SL 10.1 to current since it's free
