    Then run the backtick with `command 2>&1` and it shouldn't hang, as eventually it will get the stderr return.

      what you're describing (at least the way i interpret it) is a pause, not a hang.

      the issue i have is the threads hang, ie *never* finish, which AFAICT has nothing to do with error outputting.
