Description of problem:
There seems to be a issue when we run bash scripts or type on the
command line hat it uses a lot of processing power.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run a bash script
2. or just hold down a key on the command line
Actual Results: The cpu usuage goes up to 100% and the load average
Expected Results: The system should not use hardly any power for
bash scripts when we type on the comand line.
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.
