 bash (3.2-0ubuntu17) hardy-proposed; urgency=low
   * SRU for hardy. LP: #227722.
   * /etc/skel/.bashrc:
     - Fix typo, forcing a colored prompt. LP: #223256.
     - Generate Bourne shell code when running lesspipe.
   * Add missing md5sum for feisty and gutsy /etc/skel/.bash_profile,
     so it is removed on upgrade to hardy if unmodified. LP: #211406.
   * Apply upstream patches 034 - 039, applying fixes for:
     - The bash getcwd replacement will write past the end of allocated memory
       when it allocates the buffer itself if it uses the buffer size passed
       as an argument, and that size is less than the length of the pathname.
     - Bash incorrectly puts the second and subsequent children spawned by a
       shell forked to run a command substitution in the wrong process group.
     - When initializing a subshell, bash did not reset a sentinel keeping
       track of the number of command substitutions, leading to an infinite
       loop if an error was encountered in the subshell.
     - Bash inappropriately evaluates command substitutions while expanding
       directory names as part of command substitution.
     - When reading input lines into a single variable using the `read' builtin,
       bash did not free the memory it read after assigining it to the named
       variable, causing a memory leak noticable when reading large amounts of
     - Replace shell-compat patches with upstream patch 039 (compat31).
   * Reenable running the testsuite during the build.
   * Only call add-shell on new installations; guard remove-shell in post
