I can't reproduce this behavior on
GNU bash, version 2.05b.0(1)-release (i386-portbld-freebsd4.7),  but can on
GNU bash, version 4.0.24(0)-release (amd64-portbld-freebsd7.2) and other
4.x bashes on various Linux boxes. I don't have bash 3 available, but
someone already mentioned it working for that.


My other computer is an abacus.
