Bash Version: 4.3
Patch Level: 30
Release Status: release

At line 44 of /etc/bash.bashrc the line

   eval $(dircolors)

is incorrect: it errors if $SHELL is tcsh. All other calls correctly
specify 'dircolors -b'.

Note: Arises on Linux Mint Debian Edition 2. I have not been able to
determine whether this report is more properly addressed to GNU, or
downstream to Debian or Linux Mint. Apologies if it's not you.

In a tcsh interactive shell session, invoke 'bash' or 'bash -i'.

Change line 44 to:

   eval $(dircolors -b)

Consistent with all the other calls to dircolors.
