strange bash problem on potato
I've got a really strange bash problem on potato. I found it when I wanted
to submit a bug report. The bug script always complains, that the package
name should consist only of small letters. However, the package name I
supplied did only contain small letters. The following script may be used
to demonstrate the problem:
case i in
[A-H]) echo Set [A-H]
[A-K]) echo Set [A-K]
On one of my systems this script says 'Set [A-K]', which is strange for
several reasons. First, because this is wrong, and second, because [A-H]
doesn't catch it.
On another system, which seems to have the same versions of packages
installed (I didn't check it in detail, but all obviously relevant
packages are the same), the script outputs nothing. Okay so far, but even
for substituting i="a" with i="A", I don't get any output. However, if
replace [A-H] by [a-h] and [A-K] by [a-k], I get hits for i="a" as well
as for i="A".
I haven't filed a bug report yet because it's too strange. I'd like
somebody to confirm this.
