Is there anything that happened between 3.2.39 & 3.2.49 that might
account for this, or would you suspect a problem with my setup?

I just ran the same test again on a plain xterm with TERM=xterm and no
additional layers such as gnu/screen and I'm still getting the same

If this is of interest, what kind of information about my context should
I provide.

Or should I run a test with a more current version of bash and if I
can't recreate, forget about it?
