Bash Version: 3.2
Patch Level: 4
Release Status: release

        Regradless of the huponexit setting ('shopt -s huponexit' doesn't
        help) bash does not send SIGHUP to its children when it receives one
        itself. Previous version of bash 3.1.17 was behaving properly
        even with huponexit set to off

        launch rxvt, launch mc then close the rxvt window -> 
        mc is still running with CPU to 100% (this is because 
        mc tries to read from stdin while receiving EOF)
        Closing rxvt sends SIGHUP to bash but bash doesn't send
        SIGHUP to its children

        Downgrade to bash 3.1.17
