The current script uses fd 200, doesn't work for every possible shell as
reported[1] in Debian bug #848277

We are including a patch for it in the 1.3.4-2 package, it would be good
to incorporate this patch upstream too.

This patch has been revised to include a brief description and



1. https://bugs.debian.org/848277
diff mbox


POSIX.1-2008 only specifies that file descriptor numbers
from 0 to 9, inclusive, are supported.  The number 200 works
in the bash shell, but not in dash.  This patch changes the file
descriptor number from 200 to 9.  Reported in Debian bug #848277
