Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release


In certain circumstances, attempting completion seems to cause Bash to temporarily forget an alias. This seems
        to occur when `eval' is used in the completion function.

        To reproduce the problem, I first give the following 3 commands:

                alias c5=echo
                cf5() { eval true; }
                complete -F cf5 c5

        I then type "c5 a" at the command line.  The cursor is now
        just after the `a'.  I then request completion by hitting
        Tab (no completions are found, of course).  I then hit Enter.
        Bash then gives the message "-bash: c5: command not found".

Thanks.  I fixed this one.
