Bash Version: 4.4
Patch Level: 23
Release Status: release

Description:
        The loadable sleep function seems to exit almost immediately
        in some specific cases.

It's getting interrupted by SIGCHLD. It's fixed in bash-5.0 by blocking SIGCHLD in the appropriate function, using select or pselect.
