Description mark 1999-05-12 14:13:29 EDT
The version of bash currently distributed with 6.0 reported
an error ...

malloc: block on free list clobbered
last command: find / /usr /var -xdev -type f -print | sort |
while read x; do md5 "$x"; done >md5.2
Report this to bash-maintainers@prep.ai.mit.edu
Stopping myself...

... at which point it dropped a core file.  Would the core
file be of any use in helping track down this particular
bug?  If so, I could put it on our FTP server for you to

PS:  I've reported this to bash-maintainers@prep.ai.mit.edu,
but thought you should be aware as well.

Is this problem reproducible? If so, could you reply to this
message with a short script that causes the problem? Otherwise
we're probably not going to be able to fix this.
