Bash Version: 3.2
Patch Level: 25
Release Status: release

Description:
        If CDPATH is set, whenever bash changes directories to a
        non-absolute path it reports the new directory to stdout.
        This is done even if bash is running in non-interactive mode,
        such as in a script.  That breaks scripts that do things like
        this:

This is the behavior that Posix requires:  when CDPATH is used, bash
outputs the name of the new working directory to stdout.  Commands
and shell functions need to take this into account.
