You both are confused. The original table included

That's   4.3.48(2)-release   and    4.4.19(2)-release


Both are failing.

Note that 4.4.19 is newer than what is available in
https://www.gnu.org/software/bash/

The report is valid for present releases.
The bug is still present (since 4.3).

Please, do not waste our time in incorrect claims.

Do your homework and test !
