Bash Version: 4.0
Patch Level: 35
Release Status: release

    The man page seems to be wrong regarding the handling of numbers with 
different bases. It states one has to use [base#]n although it seems to be 
[base#n] that needs to be used...
    (I know I do not have the latest bash, but with 4.1 it is the same in the 
man page.)

    blackknight ~ $ echo $[2#]10
    blackknight ~ $ echo $[2#10]

    Correct the man page
