Comment 33 for bug 778627

@ joerg:
but the default interactive behaviour has changed
$ shopt direxpand
direxpand off

And one needs to manually re-enable that option to get previous behaviour.

The template you posted lacks required information. Specifically:

The test case should check:
- that $ is escaped less
- that direxpand does not expand as expected
- that direxpand option is available and if enabled, expands directories with variable names.

The impact should describe what is being changed (underquoting + new option).

Regression potential w.r.t. to underquoting should be considered (e.g. security issues?!)
