After more tests this appears not to be a bash problem, but a RedHat
problem.  Using the latest bash sources with patches applied, and
compiling on different platforms yeilds different results on those

RedHat 7.3 using gcc    Fails
RedHat 7.3 using kgcc   Fails
SuSE 8.0 using gcc      Works

In my previous tests, the version 2.05.0(1)-release which worked was
from a SuSE distribution, and the version 2.05a.0(1)-release which
failed was from RedHat. At that time all my compiles had also been on
the RedHat 7.3 system.

Sorry to have troubled this list with my wrong diagnosis.
