You're probably right, but since most scripts (such as configure
scripts) are usually interpreted by /bin/sh, which is ash, not bash,
then this shouldn't have much impact on the normal running of scripts.
Unless, of course, there are similar problems in ash.

Still, it would be very nice to get this fixed in bash.

You can always check cygwin-announce to find this info, but, really, you
shouldn't have to do that.  Sending email here is the proper way to deal
with the issue.  Sending personal email to a package maintainer should be
the absolute last resort.  Public discussion is good.
