            Bug ID: 21574
           Summary: `help run` message says arguments are expanded via
                    "sh"
           Product: gdb
           Version: 8.0
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: tui
          Assignee: unassigned at sourceware dot org
          Reporter: fhomborg at gmail dot com
  Target Milestone: ---

In response to `help run`, gdb says "Args may include "*", or "[...]"; they are
expanded using "sh".". That's incorrect - they are expanded using $SHELL,
whatever that may be (unless it is undefined, which it usually isn't at least
on UNIX-like systems).

The info documentation seems correct.
