mcheck(a,b)



In Bash 3.0, there is a call to mcheck() with 2 arguments. The
prototype in mcheck.h has only 1 argument. The function definition in
glibc only has 1 argument. Does anyone know why the call from bash
gives a 2nd argument? Was there an expectation that mcheck would be
expanded to take a second argument?
