Note that quilt builds just fine on rawhide (soon to be FC-6) so that version
must have the patch to fix the issue.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2006-10-23 12:21:25 EDT
I'm going to push a bash-3.1-9.fc5.1 package to updates-testing.  Please try it
out when it appears.

I installed this today and quilt built fine.  Regular bash operations seem to be
functioning as well.  The update looks good, thanks!
