I have:

Bash 3.2 was correctly telling me about new mail arriving.  However,
after I updated to Bash 4.0, I constantly get a "You have new mail."
message every minute even though I actually don't have new mail.  Has
the mail notification feature changed in Bash 4.0?  I can't see anything
relevant in the man page or NEWS file.
I don't use a maildir-aware mail program, but you can debug this by
setting a breakpoint in mailcheck.c:check_mail().

Learning to debug Bash is not in my todo list right now. But if there's anything else I can do I would be happy to.
