        On rereading Linus's message, I see that he indicated that
"while true ; do /bin/true ; done" was known to be a bash bug, not
just a suggested possibility. Sorry for acting as if this were
a new discovery. Anyhow, I hope that at least the proposed bash
patch that I submitted may be of some use.
