PWD bug

Do the following in bash shell ...u will get to know the bug in it.

Create a sub directory.

get into that directory using 'cd' command.

remove the present working directory using rm ~/Newlycreateddirectory with
-rf swtiches.

it removes the directory successfully.

But if u see the content of the PWD environment variable it is not updated
and hence forth the prompt of the shell ( if we have made use of the PWD
as a command prompt ).

Either it should not allow us to remove the Present working directory

or it should take us to the next immediate outer directory available.

You may contact me for further clarrifications about this bug.
