Description Adam Stokes 2008-05-15 09:17:47 EDT
Description of problem:
In normal case, the job specification %- means the previous job. It's written in
the manual of bash. But, if there is only the current job, it seems that the job
specification %- means the current job according the actual behavior. But, the
behavior is not in the manual of bash.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Step 1:  Execute man man on background.
   Step 2:  Check the status and flag of current job using with jobs command.
   Step 3:  Specify jobspec "%-" that actually not exist.
      * The result should be failed but did not failed.
   # man man &
   [1] 18709
   # jobs
   [1]+  Stopped                 man man
   # fg %-
   man man
Actual results:
Description in man page is different from actual operation. 

Expected results:
The man page describes the exceptional information.
