Note: Configuration Information is irrelevant -- same bug in all 
versions(3.1-4.0 inclusive)/OSes(linux,tru64)/machines(alpha,i686,x86_64).

        {trap "/external/program" DEBUG} breaks pipelining in some ways. When 
trap is set:

        1. A | B pipeline sometimes(*) does not run(**) second part and hungs 
           sometimes SIGINT(Ctrl+C) revives it, and second part starts.
           (*) in my observation it depends on time, 'A' takes to complete -- 
"small" tasks does not triggers that behaviour.
           (**) trap for the "B" part is called, but not the command "B" itself
        2. A & B breaks job control
        3. (may be not a bug) "$_" no longer contains last arg.
        [1] ./bash --norc
        bash-4.0$ trap /bin/true DEBUG
        bash-4.0$ du -xk .. | sort
        #either works or hungs until Ctrl+C, depending on size of du's directory
        #ps shows 'du', but no 'sort'

        [2] ./bash --norc
        bash-4.0$ trap /bin/true DEBUG
        bash-4.0$ /bin/true & /bin/true
