Fixed In Version: ksh-20120801-24.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, ksh sometimes incorrectly initialized a variable holding the path of the working directory. If a program changed the working directory between forking and ksh execution, then ksh could contain an incorrect value in the working directory variable. With this update, initialization of the working directory variable has been corrected, and ksh now contains the correct value in the aforementioned situation.
