Description of problem:
Bug #86514 was fixed by changing the bash build not to use the
--with-afs flag. Although that change does fix #86514 by disabling
some (apparently bogus) code in redir.c, it also causes bash to use
the mode bits, rather than access(), to determine whether it has
permission to access a file. Since AFS uses directory ACLs rather
than file mode bits to control access for the most part, looking at
the mode bits frequently yields the wrong result.
Please revert this change and replace it with a more tailored fix,
perhaps by patching redir.c not to contain the offending code.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fixed in CVS.
Fixed in Fedora development. This will appear in a future Red Hat
Enterprise Linux release. Thanks for the report.
