[erix]: ( postgres has adopted TAP tests + perl for testing, and I'm playing around with that )
[Corion]: erix: Maybe the program re-opens STDERR or something like that? Also, I think you need to redirect first and then do the 2>&1 thing, but I never know and have to Google that
[huck]: erix some things also write to the raw console/tty/pty rather than stdout/stderr
[Discipulus]: see this useful site
[erix]: hm. ok. Either might be the case here. I guess I need to try out more
[choroba]: The redirections seem to happen right to left
