Re: read builtin is not honoring -t argument

I'm very sorry; I believe I may have wasted your time. After further
testing, I can only reproduce this using xfce4-terminal (0.6.2) in Fedora
19. Read works fine in gnome-terminal and on tty's, so I hereby
respectfully retract my report. Thank you for the work you guys do!

Just to show I'm not (completely) insane, though:

address@hidden ~]$ echo $0
address@hidden ~]$ type -a read
read is a shell builtin
read is /usr/bin/read
read is /bin/read
address@hidden ~]$ time timeout -s 9 5s read -t 1

real    0m5.001s
user    0m0.000s
sys    0m0.000s
address@hidden ~]$ time read -t 1

real    0m7.904s
user    0m0.000s
sys    0m0.000s
