type ahead problem in bash-1.12 & bash-1.13.4

Post by Bruno Tregui » Wed, 24 Nov 1993 22:38:25



I'm experiencing a type-ahead problem with bash-1.12 and bash-1.13.4 on
Solaris 2.2: look at these lines: the commands have all been typed
before the first one finishes.
The only command that is executed then is "sleep 1"... What have the
others become ?

bash$sleep 10
sleep 1
sleep 2
sleep 3
sleep 4
bash$sleep 1
bash$

Has anyone else experienced the same problem and/or got the solution ?
Is this a known bug ?

(This bug only comes up on Solaris, it seems. I tried to trigger it on
a couple of machines, a SUN running SunOS 4.1.3 and a SYSV machine very
little known outside of France, on which we managed to compile and run
bash, but it never happened...)

Thanks for any help...

Bruno

You can add zsh-2.{3,4beta}, and tcsh-6.03.00 to the list as well (although
a patch is available for the latter).

I believe it is a problem with Solaris2.2, as the problem disappears when
you upgrade to Solaris2.3.

Right, I was also only able to reproduce it under Solaris2.2.
