 From Chapter 1 of the book:

"Unfortunately, development of the LiveCD has not progressed recently and it 
only contains older versions of the source packages and patches (the versions 
not labeled “-nosrc” or “-min”), and this book."

It's really doubtful that the compiled version of bash on the Live CD is the 
problem since it has been around since Dec 2007 and this is the first report of 
a problem.
