Please take a look at
and see if that behaves the way you like.


In the discussion that you referenced earlier, it mentions that it was considered making this behavior controlled by a settable parameter.

Is that implemented with this patch?

Is this eventually going to be part of an official patch?

This issue was reported to me by the same person that submitted the Red-Hat Bug report, and not something that is directly impacting me.

I did search for the issue before posting, but apparently did not use the right keywords, and I did not see the issue addressed in any of the official patches.

In my current spare time project below, I am planning to try to just implement as much as the current Bash + official patch behavior as I can, and probably not implement the optional patches. Once I get the base 4.2 release functional, then I will apply all the official patches to the source.
