No, my /bin/bash is dated June 22.  It says it's

GNU bash, version 4.2.10(1)-release (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu)

So I'm surprised that you didn't observe the bug when you were
running Fedora 15.  I'm also surprised you didn't observe it
with Fedora 16, since the bug is in Bash -- maybe Fedora 16
has patched it?

The failing diagnostic (without my recent coreutils fix) is:

./misc/sort-continue: redirection error: cannot duplicate fd: Invalid argument
./misc/sort-continue: line 33: /dev/null: Invalid argument

I can reproduce the bash bug with a simple test case, with
the latest stable Bash, and have reported this as a Bash bug
