Are you trying this in a shell script? If so, you may be
inadvertently using the ash shell rather than bash.
By default, you get the ash shell when you run a script.
To get bash, you need to add "#!/bin/bash" as the first line
of the script.
A word of advice - don't report things as bugs unless you are sure
they are bugs and not cockpit error - it can make you look
foolish if you or your configuration are to blame.
