Re: /bin/sh redirection in 'while' loop not closed afterwards?

Yes, exactly.
The problem seems to appear around redir.c:144

fcntl() returns EBADF, 'try' is incremented and the redirection is never
registered in sv->renamed. Then popredir() does not undo it afterwards.

With a simpler redirection like "ls 9</dev/null" fcntl does not return EBADF.
So I'm not sure what's wrong.

                        if ((i = fcntl(fd, F_DUPFD, 10)) == -1) {
                                switch (errno) {
                                case EBADF:
                                        if (!try) {
                                                openredirect(n, memory, flags);
                                                goto again;
                        if (!try) {
                                sv->renamed[fd] = i;

I think there is no subshell. At least I don't see it while follwing the code
under gdb and that's also how I understand how it works. evaltree() gets called
thrice with NREDIR, NWHILE and NCMD. But I may miss something.
