 The test case should probably:
  - gain a comment that it relies on fd 0 .. 2 to be valid
  - do a closefrom(3) early
  - assert that fd is > 2
 Besides that, this is more of a (k)sh bug, which seems to be pretty common
 for bourne shells in general (or so says the internet, the fd in use seems
 to vary, typically 19 instead of 9). The shell keeps an fd open when it execs
 scripts from a file.
 What now? Split this PR into two, one for the testcase, one for (k)sh?
 Or fix the testcase and reuse this as the PR for the shell?
