#10504 closed bug (fixed)

bash crashes running --help

Repeatable bug on hrev46756. I have stock in ~/todo/ with a todo.cfg that lives there too. I run:

~> ./todo/ -d todo/todo.cfg --help Kill Thread

Now, I know I'm supposed to put 'help' instead of '--help', but I don't think this is supposed to cause bash to crash. (If I do put 'help' or any other normal command, it works fine.) Attached is the crash report.

Does this command line work on another OS? If yes, what bash version? Bash is a third party application, which we would have to update from upstream anyway one day.

I'm not sure, it's the only place I use it. Also, I just noticed if I cd into /todo and run just ' --help', it also works without crashing.

Still happening on hrev47114.

Assuming was from this seems to be fixed now.
