Duuuh.  I _knew_ it had to be in there somewhere!

My apologies, the man-page I read was on a Red Hat 6.0 system, which
has bash 1.14.7(1) as its default bash; so no mention of "shopt".  Of
course, it turns out that Red Hat 6.0 also includes a binary called
"bash2" which is 2.03.4(1) ...

The upshot is, I should be using the semi-hidden newer bash.

Thanks for the pointer.
