Bug with declarative arrays

Hello everybody,


I believe I have a relevant bug to report. My company uses bash extensively and we would like to contribute!


The bug I found is related to the possibility of obtaining all keys of a declarative array at once (address@hidden syntax). It seems that every time such a call is done there is memory allocation, which is NOT deallocated when the corresponding scope ends. This produces a memory leak.


In the attachment there is a simple script with an endless loop. As long as it runs the memory usage will increase.



-          Debian 8  linux kernel 3.16.0-4-amd64

-          Bash version 4.3.30(1) x86_64-pc-linux-gnu



I also search the documentation to see I was misusing the syntax, but I could not find such a explanation. My apologies if I oversaw something.



Thanks in advance,

Emilio Pastor Mira
