Subject: [PATCH] rhs argument of single = in [[ <expression> ]] is also treated as pattern

Not sure how savannah reports are followed, so small headups of a thing I
experienced which probably is a bug. I made small bug report at
https://savannah.gnu.org/support/?108110 - though obviously the behavior as
described for '==' is valid (rhs is pattern).

So what I suspected was that [[ <expression> ]] treated both = and == in the
same way - and this seemed invalid, as for = it should be treated as a normal
string - in the same way as for [ <expression> ] and test.

If my reasoning is fine, following patch should address the problem. If not,
then just ignore it.

I also added minor man update, to emphasize [[ and [ difference in rhs argument.

  execute_cmd.c: don't treat rhs of = as pattern in conditional
