   An update that has three recommended fixes can now be


   This update for bash provides the following fixes:

   - Bugfix: Parse settings in inputrc for all screen TERM variables starting
     with "screen." (bsc#1095661)
   - Make the generation of bash.html reproducible. (bsc#1100488)
   - Use initgroups(3) instead of setgroups(2) to fix the usage of suid
     programs. (bsc#1095670)
   - Fix a problem that could cause hash table bash uses to store exit
     statuses from asynchronous processes to develop loops in circumstances
     involving long-running scripts that create and reap many processes.
   - Fix a problem that could cause the shell to loop if a SIGINT is received
     inside of a SIGINT trap handler.
   - Fix cases where a failing readline command (e.g., delete-char at the end
     of a line) can cause a multi-character key sequence to 'back up' and
     attempt to re-read some of the characters in the sequence.
   - Fix a problem when sourcing a file from an interactive shell, that
     setting the SIGINT handler to the default and typing ^C would cause the
     shell to exit.
