Bash Version: 3.0
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

Our environment uses maildir format mailboxes.  When a user has a large
mailbox, bash takes a very long time (sometimes 60-120 seconds on a mailbox
with 5000 messages in it) when doing the "new mail check".  The more
messages in the mailbox, the worse the problem gets.

  With a large maildir mailbox of 2500 or more messages, set $MAIL
appropriately and wait for a new message to come in.  You will encounter
long pauses between commands when Bash checks for new mail.
