It's just sleeping ;-) Seems to be a quick and dirty hack which came
from the upstream source to solve problems with bash2.0. Hopefully it
will be solved more cleanly in the near future.

What's the railroad to me ?
I never go to see
Where it ends.
It fills a few hollows,
And makes banks for the swallows, 
It sets the sand a-blowing,
And the blackberries a-growing.
                      (Henry David Thoreau)
