newbie win95 bash crash problem

   I've read through the FAQ's and the mail archives.  I've seen several people
mention this problem, but no solutions offered.  I installed B19.1 which
contains the latest bash.  Everything seems to run fine, I've compiled a bunch
of code using gcc, the commands seem to work predictably.  However, if I type
garbage at bash, after a few tries it hangs.  For example if I type "dc" at the
comand prompt instead of "cd" it will comeback "command not found"  and give me
a new prompt maybe 3 times in a row, and on the fourth time it hangs win95.
Sometimes it hangs on the first try, sometimes on the third, but always before
the 6th......

Any help would be appreciated.
