Bash Version: 3.1
Patch Level: 11
Release Status: release

Description:
        I've noticed that if I use ',' to repeat a substitution
        in vi-mode, bash either dumps core or goes into a hard
        loop.

Repeat-By:
        Any command should do, I used this now as I was filling out
        this form:

          $ set -o vi
          $ date; date; date
          Fri Mar  3 12:53:06 CST 2006
          Fri Mar  3 12:53:06 CST 2006
          Fri Mar  3 12:53:07 CST 2006

        Now, with vi-mode in effect, type 'ESC -' to bring up the
        "date..." command, type 'f e' to move the cursor to the
        first 'e', type 'r e' to replace the 'e' with 'e', type ';'
        to move the cursor to the second 'e', type '.' to repeat
        the previous substitution.

        For me, bash goes into a hard loop at this point and I need
        to 'kill -9' the process.
