Bash Version: 4.3
Patch Level: 46
Release Status: release

        When using any functionality that triggers shquote the
        comma character is escaped with a backslash which bash
        doesn't strip when the quoted text is reused, while
        tilde isn't despite it causing home directory expansion.

                echo $(printf "%q" "~" "a,b")
        Expected output:
                ~ a,b
        Given output
                /home/scragar a\,b

        patching /lib/sh/shquote.c to have the bstab to have zero
        for comma and a 1 for the tilde fixes this issue locally
