bug#20484: 25.0.50; Directory tracking in ansi-term broken.

Hi Glenn,

You are absolutely correct.  I'm not sure how I found the other commit at fault, user error most definitely.

I'm not entirely sure how to approach this, locally even.  I guess I'll have to build my own debian packages to revert this change.

Git master for Bash on Savannah doesn't even mention the INSIDE_EMACS environment variable, so the current software simply will not work.  I believe that beaab89896 only serves to break things with little gain (to those who inappropriately used EMACS in their scripts).  It certainly breaks things for users like me who exist almost entirely in Emacs.  Has the intent to move away from the EMACS environment variable been communicated to the Bash folks?

You should be able to verify this by using eg

EMACS='24.5.1 (term:0.96)' emacs -Q -f ansi-term

and seeing that it works again.

I don't get

It's just going to break things for anybody running any released version
of bash (as predicted in the preceding message). It will be a long time
before all the systems Emacs supports default to a suitably recent bash.
