Bash Version: 2.05
Patch Level: 7
Release Status: release

Description:
        When logging in and running "ps", the following output is
        produced:
                  PID TTY          TIME CMD
                 1152 ?        00:00:00 bash
                 1174 ?        00:00:00 ps

        Special shell-functions, like stop (^Z) and terminate (^C)
        don't work.

        After issuing "su" to gain rootprivs, the following warning is
        produced:
                bash: no job control in this shell

        After several logout's-login's (^D for logging out still works)
        the problem disappears (normal output:
                  PID TTY          TIME CMD
                 1227 tty3     00:00:00 bash
                 1249 tty3     00:00:00 ps
        and ^C / ^Z work).

        This problem appears with several kernels (so this isn't
        related due to the fact I'm currently running 2.4.14-pre3) but
        I haven't tested it with 2.2-kernels.

        PS Mailing under 2.4.13 again, problem remains.

        It wasn't much of a problem before (2 or 3 logout/logins were
        succesfull, most of the time the problem didn't even occur) but
        now I run mount with the "notail,noatime"-options (ReiserFS)
        and the problem is extremely frequent.

Repeat-By:
        Log on.

Fix:
        Frequently log out and on again, hope that it disappears before
        INIT sais "respawning too fast. disables for 5 minutes" or so
        (frequently logging out/in again makes INIT go angry).
