[solved] Me pipes are busted

After todays update of bash piping anything to anything just hangs, doesn't ever complete or even fail.
e.g. ls | wc -l    printf "hello\n there" | grep hello

Downgrading bash to  4.2.045-5 fixes it.

Re: [solved] Me pipes are busted

I updated this morning, shutdown the laptop, did some stuff and fired the laptop up again and when I tried to do any piping in the terminal it would never do anything. I downgraded bash and rebooted and piping worked again. Don't know what else it could be...

Re: [solved] Me pipes are busted

I would try it with the default bashrc and see if it works, easy way to eliminate a variable.

Re: [solved] Me pipes are busted

Found out is the trap line near the bottom. That has worked well for ages and I can't find anything in bash's changelog that is relevant to it...

Thanks to jasonwryan

bash changelog wrote:

Fixed a bug caused by executing an external program from the DEBUG trap
    while a pipeline was running.  The effect was to disturb the pipeline
    state, occasionally causing it to hang

Confirmed in #bash as a bash bug. Bug report filed with them.
Thanks for the swift interest and replies.

Cheers

I am also using the same script as motunes to show the title in urxvt. Need to hold bash from update?

Re: [solved] Me pipes are busted

On a side note, bashbug fails without rmail being installed and rmail isn't in the repos.

/usr/bin/bashbug: line 266: rmail: command not found
/usr/bin/bashbug: mail failed: report saved in /home/pnewm/dead.bashbug

I found the appropriate mailing list and sent the dead.bashbug file there.

I don't know anything about how these would go together - but it seems rmail is in the repos:

$ pkgfile rmail
community/exim

$ pkgfile -l exim | grep rmail
community/exim	/usr/bin/rmail

Re: [solved] Me pipes are busted

Thanks for that Trilby, I should install pkgfile but I don't seem to need it often enough...
I just did a pacman -Ss rmail.
I'll see if I can have the bash people include their bugs mailing address in the error message for when rmail isn't found. It would save having it as a dependency and people having to search for the mailing list

Re: [solved] Me pipes are busted

I was sent a patch so I built bash with it and all seems to be good now.

Re: [solved] Me pipes are busted

It might pay to pastebin the patch, just in case others find themselves in the same boat.
