Description dbodnarc 2017-05-11 12:48:01 UTC
Description of problem:
As per customer example - rc scripts (.profile, .bashrc) which doesn't conform to POSIX mode causes issues (i.e. while using tigervnc)

According to the bash manual, names should contain letters, digits and underscores only. 

However there are files commonly used inside .bashrc that do not conform to POSIX mode.

The following script use hyphens in function names:
in /etc/bash_completion.d/: rhn-migrate-classic-to-rhsm rhsm-debug rhsm-icon

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ bash --posix
2. $ . /etc/profile.d/bash_completion.sh

Actual results:
bash: `_rhn-migrate-classic-to-rhsm': not a valid identifier
bash: `_rhsm-debug': not a valid identifier
bash: `_rhsm-icon': not a valid identifier

Expected results:
no errors

Reproducing the failure : 

[root@dhcp35-154 ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.3 (Maipo)

[root@dhcp35-154 ~]# rpm -qa subscription-manager*

[root@dhcp35-154 ~]# bash --posix
bash-4.2# source /etc/profile.d/bash_completion.sh
bash: `_itweb-settings': not a valid identifier
bash: `_rhn-migrate-classic-to-rhsm': not a valid identifier
bash: `_rhsm-debug': not a valid identifier
bash: `_rhsm-icon': not a valid identifier
bash-4.2# exit

Verifying on latest subscription-manager :

[root@dhcp151-206 ~]# subscription-manager version
subscription management server:
subscription management rules: 5.15.1
subscription-manager: 1.19.16-1.el7
python-rhsm: 1.19.7-1.el7

[root@dhcp151-206 ~]# rpm -qa subscription-manager --changelog | grep 1450049
- 1450049: Replace `-` with `_` in completion functions (khowell@redhat.com)

[root@dhcp151-206 ~]# bash --posix
bash-4.2# source /etc/profile.d/bash_completion.sh
bash: `_itweb-settings': not a valid identifier

^^ Observed that error from "rhn-migrate-classic-to-rhsm" , "rhsm-debug" and "rhsm-icon" NO longer appear. The "itweb-settings" failure is tracked under a different bug 1450046 . Hence moving this bug to "verified" as the subscription-manager component related issues are now fixed.
