Bash Version: 2.05
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

Description:
        I found this bug by code inspection; it doesn't occur on my host.

        If RLIMTYPE is signed, Bash's print_rlimtype function mishandles
        the most negative value.  It attempts to take the absolute value,
        but this overflows.

Repeat-By:

Fix:
This patch assumes the earlier patch that I sent in, which defines
INT_STRLEN_BOUND.

        * general.c (print_rlimtype): Handle the most negative value correctly.
