Subject: Re: Bug? "fstat64(f, &sb) < 0 && S_ISREG(sb.st_mode)"

I see the change was introduced here
by importing code from FreeBSD's sh.

What I find interesting is testing the contents of 'sb', when the
fstat64 call failed. FreeBSD's code has the opposite:
i.e. they do:

    if (fstat(f, &sb) != -1 && S_ISREG(sb.st_mode)) {

BTW, that code was introduced here:

Also, the way the open is performed has an interesting consequence,
i.e. the redirection operation on a FIFO blocks until something is
written to the FIFO:

hp% dash -Cc 'rm ff; mkfifo ff; echo a > ff'
^Cdash: 1: cannot create ff: Interrupted system call

It seems to be the same case for mksh, ksh93, posh, pdksh. Not that it
matters though.
