Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 48840] New: catalina.sh fails to set CATALINA_HOME on newer bash versions

           Summary: catalina.sh fails to set CATALINA_HOME on newer bash
                    versions
           Product: Tomcat 6
           Version: 6.0.18
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Catalina
        AssignedTo: dev@tomcat.apache.org
        ReportedBy: mdietze@gmail.com

Suppresses the printing of a path cd'ed to when computing $CATALINA_HOME

On a newly installed Ubuntu system, this line in catalina.sh fails:

[ -z "$CATALINA_HOME" ] && CATALINA_HOME=`cd "$PRGDIR/.." ; pwd`

After this line, $CATALINA_HOME has a value like this (using '\n' as newline
which actually appears in the variable's value):

/path/to/tomcat\n/path/to/tomcat

It seems like when cd'ing the path is printed to stdout, so that $CATALINA_HOME
ends up unusable.

This behaviour has been observed with this version of bash:

$ bash --version
GNU bash, Version 4.0.33(1)-release (i486-pc-linux-gnu)
Copyright (C) 2009 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
[...]

The problem can be fixed using the attached patch.
