And the book should mention what the patches do. After all, LFS is about 
understanding your system. What exactly is the above bug about anyway? Is 
it bash related? I ask because I got that message when doing a make check 
using bash 2.04 instead of my normal 2.03.

A pessimist fears that this is true.
