bash: /dev/stderr: Permission denied

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – After upgrading to a new release version, my bash scripts start spitting errors: bash: /dev/stderr: Permission denied in previous versions Bash would internally recognize those file names (which is why this question is not a duplicate of this one) and do the right thing (tm), however, this has stopped working now. What can I do to be able to run my scripts again successfully? I have tried adding the user running the script to the group tty, but this makes no difference (even after logging out and back in). I can reproduce this on the command line without problem: $ echo test > /dev/st (HowTos)
