We have changed our bash to version to bash-2.05-8 and this seems to 
sort the problem out. Although using your supplied bash with ES 3 we 
still have the problem and bash only acts normally using this older

This has been fixed in the fedora/development package (bash-2.05b-33),
and will be included in a future release.

In the mean time, you can use 'export LANG=C' to work around the
problem if need be.
