bash 2.05a-3 scripting problem (read function)

Hi

I've got a problem with the read function in bash 2.05a-3 binary version running on NT4 Pentium III

Example
-------------

bash$
bash$ read proj
/temp
bash$ cd $proj
: No such file or directory
bash$ cd /temp
bash$ pwd
/temp
bash$ test -d $proj
bash$ echo $?
1
bash$ test -d /temp
bash$ echo $?
0
bash$
---------------------------------------
When testing or trying to change directories using $proj it fails. When
using the literal values it passes. It appears that the read function does
not work properly. May be I'm doing something stupid or missing something
completely. I have looked through the FAQs and mail list archives but cannot
find anything similar.

Regards
Steven Weiss
