On this particular computer I have linked /usr/local/bin/bash (where my
"makes" go) to /bin/bash.  Well, my computer apparently updated /bin/bash
recently and wiped out my link and was therefore using an older version of
bash.  But, my $PATH has /usr/local/bin before /bin; so it looked to me like
the new version of bash was being used (until I looked at BASH_VERSION).
Although, my login shell was actually using an older version of bash.

My sincerest apologies for taking up valuable time from this forum; but I do
appreciate the feedback and willingness to assist!

Kind regards,
