Bash Version: 3.0
Patch Level: 15
Release Status: release

Description:
when user is in window one in some directory, and from window two that directory is moved to another location (or name), the pwd in the first window isn't being updated and when user tries to access a file without using full path, it gets the file that was in the original directory even thought it was moved.

Repeat-By:
       in window 1:
       -------------

       mkdit ~/test;
       cd ~/test;
       echo "hey" > file;

       cat file;
               -- "hey"

       ------------------

       in window 2:
       ------------
       mv ~/test ~/test.old
       mkdir ~/test
       echo "bye" > file;
       cat file;
               -- "bye";

       ------------------

       in window 1:
       ------------
       cat file;
               -- "hey" (even thought ~/test/file contains now "bye")
       cat `pwd`/file;
               -- "bye" (it's ok using full path)

       ------------------------

   also:

   address@hidden test]$ ll
   total 0
   -rw-rw-r--  1 quatrix quatrix 0 Sep 11 17:39 go
   -rw-rw-r--  1 quatrix quatrix 0 Sep 11 17:39 hey
   -rw-rw-r--  1 quatrix quatrix 0 Sep 11 17:39 ho
   -rw-rw-r--  1 quatrix quatrix 0 Sep 11 17:39 lets
   address@hidden test]$ ll `pwd`
   total 0
   -rw-rw-r--  1 quatrix quatrix 0 Sep 11 17:40 a
   -rw-rw-r--  1 quatrix quatrix 0 Sep 11 17:40 b
   -rw-rw-r--  1 quatrix quatrix 0 Sep 11 17:40 c

   --------------------------------


P.S. i checked for this bug in csh, just to make sure it's not a file system glich, and in csh when one moves a directory, a user who's in that directory gets its 'pwd' changed to the new value;
