Re: '$1' indexing.

Hmm, you posted exactly this same thing with the subject "bug" on the
20th.  Did you not see the replies?  Yes, it's a bug, and a patch for
it has also been posted.

See http://www.zsh.org/mla/workers/2011/msg01456.html for explanation
and http://www.zsh.org/mla/workers/2011/msg01459.html for patch.

} function z
} {
} var=$1
} echo "var:/${1:0:1}/${1:1:1}/${1:2:1}/"
} echo "var:/${var:0:1}/${var:1:1}/${var:2:1}/"
} }
} $ z abcde
} var: /a/a/b/
} var: /a/b/c/
} Surely the indexing of '$1' is wrong? I can assign the value to 'var' 
} and all is well but I don't think I should have to.
} Thoughts?
