Thanks for the quick reply. I just tested that patch, and it does indeed
fix the bug.  The distribution I'm using is only up to version 4.2.24,
unfortunately, so I'll have to wait to get a working dirspell option
again under bash 4.2.

So just to verify: there's no way in bash 4.2.0 through 4.2.28 to make
dirspell work correctly?  The only fix is the direxpand option?
