Bash Version: 4.1
Patch Level: 7
Release Status: release

        A typographical error in the man page for bash (bash.1.gz)
        causes corruption in the view that 'man' presents to the
        user. The error is in the first of the following lines:

.B menu\-complete-\backward
Identical to \fBmenu\-complete\fP, but moves backward through the list
of possible completions, as if \fBmenu\-complete\fP had been given a
negative argument.  This command is unbound by default.

         The character sequence '\b' just prior to "ackward" is
         interpreted as a backspace character by 'groff'. This causes 
         menu-complete-krd to be displayed instead of menu-complete-backward.
        Issue 'man bash' to display the 'bash' man page and space
        forward to the doc immediately preceding 'delete-char-or-list'.


Replace this line:
.B menu\-complete-\backward


.B menu\-complete\-backward
