Ktrace shows that fcntl(F_MAXFD) returns 3 in the csh case, but 9 in the
I see several possibilities here:
* The test case is bogus because it's relying on the shell to leave a
predeterminate amount of file descriptors open.
* ksh/sh are leaking file descriptors.
Note that a test misbehaving when run by hand (not through atf-run)
should not be seen as a problem though.
Another thing is that atf-run should be closing the file descriptors in
a consistent manner, but I can't see it doing so at the moment. (If we
conclude that there is nothing else to do but adjust atf-run, assign the
PR to me please.)
