Bash Version: 2.05a
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

        Bash causes a segmentation fault when some special shell variables
        are declared as array

        in bash, declare one of the shell variables RANDOM,SECONDS,HISTCMD or
        LINENO as an array by executing eg. 'declare -a RANDOM', and then try
        to read its contents by executing eg. 'echo $RANDOM'.
        The shell will immediately quit because of a segfault
