Well, I don't remember this problem ever existing, but it may very well be
possible that you upgrading to bash-2.05 fixes this. Perhaps this problem
was known with the Bash guys and they fixed it.

I'd just download bash-2.05 and try to compile that version. Don't use 2.04

that's possible too, you'd have to download a libncurses upgrade for your
distribution then.
