No need to do that, see below.

Woo hoo!  I can!

No, seriously, I also failed to reproduce the problem yesterday.
I just supposed I'm supplying enough hints for Vladimir.  ;-)

But your innocent (was it?) comment has made me to try harder.
The original post mentions slamd64, so I downloaded
and was able to reproduce the bug with the binary inside.

Then I tried the same with bash-3.1.017-i486-2.tgz from slackware
and, again, I was able to reproduce the bug.

This bug should be reported.  I filed a request for an account in
bugzilla bugs.slamd64.com, no response yet.  I wasn't able to find
any bug report addres nor bug database for slackware.
Vladimir, could you please report the bug (with the two-line
reproducer quoted above) to the distributions?
