 Bash Version: 3.0
 Patch Level: 13
 Release Status: release

        It's possible to kill bash with large memory usage due to
        brace expansion. I know it's also my limited memory (1GB),
        but bash should catch that, no? If this is a known issue and
        already fixed, sorry for bothering.

        echo {0..255}.{0..255}.{0..255}.{0..255}
        # Lighter version:
        echo {0..255}.{0..255}.{0..255}
