Description Donald Greer 2005-06-27 23:13:44 UTC
Description of problem:
On occassion (happened to 2 students), the test of this excercise gives
"bin_is_my_parent" when it should be looking for "PPID_is_my_parent" where
"PPID" is the value of "$PPID".

I have manually verified these student's scripts and the results.  In one case
(afgonza) I was got it to work by commenting out the line that created the file
and retyped it.  After it worked, I removed my changes and retested and it
worked as it was supposed to.
  I've attached a copy of the .bashrc for "bcf69".
The other student "bcf69" had the same problem and he simply touched
"bin_is_my_parent" to work around it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Happened on 2 out of 10 students, but HOW it happened is unknown.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
Test results in "bin_is_my_parent" does not exist and no points on that section
of the lab.

Expected results:
"####_is_my_parent" exists and student should get points.
