time echo "bah"
time ls

Running the commands without the time, they return results as close to instantly as I can think of, but, try to time them, in bash, and they all hang. Time the same commands in tcsh, they come back near-instantly, with time readouts.

At first, I thought there was something with the version of bash, since a couple of other machines with differing versions do not exhibit this behavior, but, installing corresponding versions on this machine that is acting strangely made no difference. Have bounced through multiple versions with the same results - a hung command every time I try to time in bash.

It's very difficult to tell without at least an idea of what you're trying

to do. Paste a snippet of the code or commands you are using.
