it's a console login under solaris 5.5.1.  my default shell is bash 2.01.1(1).
my .bash_profile says:

     if [ ${BASH_VERSINFO[1]} -lt 5]; then exec ~/local/bin/bash --login "$@"

and ~/local/bin/bash is 2.05.0(1).   not sure what /usr/bin/login does under
solaris 2.5.1.

what was the patch (the code fragment listed earlier) supposed to do?

How exactly is bash being invoked?  Can you find out whether the invoking
process is putting bash in it's own process group, or whether it's
starting bash in a separate process group without changing the terminal's
pgrp (which is, by definition, a background process)?
