i have bash-1.03 running in UInteractive systems 386/ix ver 2.02
that is System V 3.2 in 386 . I have found two problems.

1 - I have shell function 
	l=() {
	    ls -CF $*;
    When i execute it, and when it terminates i got infinite number of
    error message Wait: No child process. If i use it with pipe 
    like l | less . it works fine.

2 - When i am running bash in xterm window i have problems with ls
    listings . The xterm works , i have used in many months with
    sh and gnu emacs and other programs. The problem is that i am losing
    randomly lines !!. 
    The problem can be in Interactive systems X11.3 xterm also, but only
    program that have this problem is bash.
    This is actual output from other x-term window.

    I have used patches from gnu.bash.bug for system V.
    If there is others that are portting bash for 386/ix,
    please tell your succestions with it. I have not yet analyzed
    these problems deeply, but if they are only 386/ix specific 
    and unknown before this, i can meke more work to finding out the actual
