I have gotten to the point where I am seeing reproducible crashes in a
plain debugging version of bash inside gdb, but that the problem appears
to be malloc'd memory corruption (I hate those bugs - they are so hard to
pinpoint). I now have to attempt to build a malloc-debugging version of
bash, and see where bash is corrupting the heap.
Life is short - so eat dessert first!
