Bash Version: 2.05b
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

        If a variable is typeset in a bash function, then unset, 
        then used with the address@hidden syntax it causes a segmentation

        Create the following function, then run the function (I 
        suggest you run this in a subshell by putting it in a
        file and then running the file, or else the crash will kill
        your terminal session):

                bugfunc() {
                        typeset listvar
                        unset listvar
                        echo "address@hidden"


        This is pretty obscure and easily worked around (eg by 
        just not doing it),  but I thought you might be 
        interested.  The segfault only occurs when the variable
        is typeset; otherwise there is no problem.
