YEAH! I've solved the heap corruption in bash-3.0-2, and libreadline6 was
patched so I can link to it, so the bash executable has shrunk.  This
release also adds a postinstall script that hard links (or copies on
Win98) bash as /bin/sh IF IT DOESN'T ALREADY EXIST.  I've left this
release in test to make sure that the postinstall script behaves nicely,
and would like feedback from users' experience both with the current ash
installed, or with uninstalling ash at the same time as (re-)installing
bash.  ash has no --version, but bash does, so testing '/bin/sh --version'
after running setup.exe should give you a good idea of what your current
default shell is.  I will probably have to change the postinstall script
in future bash releases, since I just realized that otherwise on Win98,
/bin/sh would not be upgraded when /bin/bash is.  But I don't think it is
a show-stopper for this version of bash.  So, once I get some positive
feedback, and once a new version of ash is ready that changes ash from
/bin/sh to /bin/ash, we can probably make this version of bash current.
