OpenSUSE Tumbleweed oss: Updated from 5.0.11-3.2 to 5.0.11-4.1

Feb 25
  • Add official patch bash50-012
    When using previous-history to go back beyond the beginning of the history list, it's possible to move to an incorrect partial line.
  • Add official patch bash50-013
    Reading history entries with timestamps can result in history entries joined by linefeeds.
  • Add official patch bash50-014
    If the current line is empty, using the emacs C-xC-e binding to enter the editor will edit the previous command instead of the current (empty) one.
  • Add official patch bash50-015
    If alias expansion is enabled when processing the command argument to the `-c' option, an alias is defined in that command, and the command ends with the invocation of that alias, the shell's command parser can prematurely terminate before the entire command is executed.
  • Add official patch bash50-016
    Bash waits too long to reap /dev/fd process substitutions used as redirections with loops and group commands, which can lead to file descriptor exhaustion.
