Bash Version: 3.0
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

Description:
The NEWS file says:

oo. The historical behavior of `trap' that allows a missing `action' argument
   to cause each specified signal's handling to be reset to its default is
   now only supported when `trap' is given a single non-option argument.

A measure of backwards compatibility was introduced by patch 3 to
bash-3.0.

ftp://ftp.cwru.edu/pub/bash/bash-3.0-patches/

POSIX specifies the original bash-3.0 behavior.  Solaris is not a
POSIX system.
