ATF test programs inherit file descriptor 0 from the invoking environment,
so it may sometimes be a "proper" terminal, sometimes something else.
This might cause differences between manual atf runs (or test program
invocations) and automatic test runs.

In a quick discussion about the curses testcases failing in the sparc64
automatic test runs, Julio suggested to change atf to always open /dev/null
on stdin for test programs.

This is just a reminder.
