Bash Version: 3.1
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

        Let expression parsing appears to be broken in bash 3.1.  When
using a simple expression such as let a=(5+3) I get this error:
bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('
This worked in bash 3.0 and there wasn't anything in the changes that is
related to basic parsing like this.

        Use typical let statement such as let a=(5+3).
