Re: alias for commands broken in bash 2.05.0

   The two-line script below prints "abc: command not found"
   instead of the current directory on bash-2.05.0.
   I built bash from source under RedHat 7.1 (with RedHat's gcc)
   and SCO ODT 2.0 (with gcc-2.7.2.1).
   It also happens with the bash-2.04.21 distributed by RedHat.

     alias abc=pwd
     abc

Good, I'm glad it's working as advertised!

Thanks,

Brian

PS: This behavior is exactly correct; aliases are not exectued within
    scripts.  Imagine what one could do by aliasing `su to be
    something else...
