Thanks for the great patch.

I have applied your patch in our bash 4.2 + Patchlevel 20. It is solved an
issue with variable expansion. But on the other side bash completion is
broken. :-(

Bash completion with local file (./some_script.sh, e.g.) would not be working:

# ./some_sc<TAB>

Current result:
# ./some_sc

Expected result:
# ./some_script.sh

It seems that the bash completion stops working.

I have added another patch to fix this issue. It would be nice if you have
a look to the patch and let me know if this is ok.

Thanks.  This is not the correct fix for that particular problem.  Please
look at the `direxpand' branch of the bash git tree at


for a version of bash-4.2.20 with an updated direxpand patch applied.
This problem is fixed there.


Hi Chet,

thank you to point me out to the correct patch. :-) I will used this patch for the bash 4.2 + PL 20.
