fix it

Description of problem:
pathmunch in /etc/bashrc quotes the regex. Current versions of bash require the regex to be unquoted (just like glob-matching), so the regex will never match. Note the var $1 should still be quoted to prevent interpretation of regex chars.

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

Actual results:
$PATH with dups

Expected results:
$PATH without dups

Thanks for report, I see - changed between 3.1 and 3.2 . Will fix that...
Comment 2 Ondrej Vasik 2010-05-19 06:27:08 EDT
Fixed in setup-2.8.19-1.fc14 ...
Comment 3 Ondrej Vasik 2010-05-24 09:22:53 EDT
I used a bit different approach - no bashism, case is used - it seems to be even faster (and from my tests even a bit better for some obscure PATHs). As this change is no longer required, I'll mark this bugzilla as NEXTRELEASE.

See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=544652 for the setup package updates which do contain the new patmunge() with case.
