bash 2.05b with patch 001 to 007

This has been fixed in bash-3.0.

Since the manual invites "Suggestions and 'philosophical' bug reports" I'll have a complaint. Why do you have variables named PWD and OLDPWD?

Historical precedent.  ksh added $PWD and $OLDPWD quite a few years

Bash doesn't try to imitate the C shell, though it does have a few
csh-inspired features.
