Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

        When using vi-style commands (-o vi), and in a deep directory structure 
that has
        spaces in a directory name, doing a history search causes bash to crash 
with a
        segmenation fault if PS1 is set to echo pwd in the xterm titlebar and 
in prompt.


        Run this in an xterm or equivalent (I've tried it in xterm, Eterm, 
        and gnome-terminal, all with the same results)

        # PS1="\[\033]0;address@hidden:\w\007\]\h:\w # "
        # mkdir -p /thisis/aprettydeep/directory/structure/with\ some\ 
        # cd /thisis/aprettydeep/directory/structure/with\ some\ spaces/ornot
        # <esc>-k                   # enter history
        # /                         # search
