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

Description:
        Here is what the bash man page says about ".bash_logout",

             When a login shell exits, bash reads and executes commands
             from the file ~/.bash_logout, if it exists.

        If the "exit" command is executed by bash inside of a
        command substitution (which is not by definition a login
        shell), then the ".bash_logout" is invoked.

        Note that I can reproduce this problem only when I am
        logged in as "root(uid=0)"; however, when I am logged in
        as "jeff(uid=1001)" I cannot reproduce this problem.

Repeat-By:
        In the following typescript, the problem manifests at
        !100, but not at !196.

        195 jeff ~ $ sul
                 --> su -
        Password:
        0=-su, 1=/etc/profile, EUID=0, PWD=~root, SHELL=/bin/sh, SHLVL=1
        0=-su, 1=.bash_profile, EUID=0, PWD=~root, SHELL=/bin/sh, SHLVL=1
        0=-su, 1=.profile, EUID=0, PWD=~root, SHELL=/bin/sh, SHLVL=1
        0=-su, 1=.sh_env, EUID=0, PWD=~root, SHELL=/bin/sh, SHLVL=1

        100 root ~ # aa=`exit` ; echo $aa
        0=-su, 1=.bash_logout, EUID=0, PWD=~root, SHELL=/bin/sh, SHLVL=1

        101 root ~ # exit
        logout
        0=-su, 1=.bash_logout, EUID=0, PWD=~root, SHELL=/bin/sh, SHLVL=1

        196 jeff ~ $ aa=`exit` ; echo $aa

        197 jeff ~ $
