    Bash Hangs on 2.6.7 Kernel


    Whenever I build bash (any version, any patchlevel), it hangs when I run it. I've tried compiling the same version/patchlevel on my laptop running 2.6.11 and there's no problem. I know I could just upgrade my kernel to 2.6.11, but I'm happy with how I have things working on 2.6.7 and would like to be able to solve this problem.
    For example, I'll run this new bash and do:
    Code:
    $ ls
    foo bar baz
    And it will hang indefinitely, never returning to a prompt. Control-C,Z,X, nothing works, and the only way I can kill it is:
    Code:
    kill -9 pid
    Any ideas?

    *bump*
    Okay, I've found that this could also be a bug in GLibc, however after applying the WCONtinue patch and recompiling, it still hasn't changed.
