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):
$PATH with dups
$PATH without dups
