Description of problem:
A directory called \ causes bash to hang up
It doesnt hang up tcsh
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: It does this on my machine. I got a friend to try
it out and it did the same thing on his machine
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkdir /tmp/bug
2. cd /tmp/bug
3. mkdir \\
4. cd \\
Actual results: shell hangs up
Expected results: should be able to cd into the directory
This comes from the PROMPT_COMMAND environment variable, defined in
/etc/bashrc. You can work around it with 'unset PROMPT_COMMAND'.
This seems to work for me in current releases.
