Release Status: release

        Bash 2.05 mishandles overflow checking when testing for invalid
        TCP service numbers.  It tests for ports that are too large, but
        it doesn't test for negative ports.

        $ cat </dev/tcp/localhost/100000
        bash: 100000: invalid service
        bash: /dev/tcp/localhost/100000: Invalid argument
        $ cat </dev/tcp/localhost/-1
        bash: connect: Connection refused
        bash: /dev/tcp/localhost/-1: Connection refused

        The two results should be similar, but with port -1 Bash
        actually attempts to connect to port 65535.
