Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

        Assigning arrays using
                testvar=( $(echo A) $(echo B) )
        is accepted in bash-3.1.0. However, using the
        same in an eval-construct
                eval testvar=( $(echo A) $(echo B) )
        is rejected:
          bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('
        This behavior is different in bash-3.0.16, where the eval statement is 
        I'm not shure whether that's a real bug or 3.0.16 was too tolerant.

        eval testvar=( $(echo A) $(echo B) )

        eval testvar="(" $(echo A) $(echo B) ")"
