        This bug is about quote removal inside parameter expansion.
        The one I experienced the bug with is the substitution one:
        but AFAIK other parameter expansions could have the same problem.

        1st bug: (documentation bug) It's not clear which quotes or
                 expansions can be performed inside the pattern and the
                 string parts.
        2nd bug: (real bug) If some of them are tried, they generally
                 work, but THE QUOTES AREN'T REMOVED. See the example

        Try this line:

          hello=world; echo "${hello//r/$'\t'}"
        If $'...' quoting were to be performed, the output shuld be:

          wo      ld
        Elsewhere, if that quoting were not to be performed, it shuld be:

        Here is the bug: the substitution is performed, but the quotes
        aren't removed. In fact the true output is this:

          wo'     'ld

        which has no meaning.
