Funny. I did exactly the same thing maybe for the same reason. If I
had run the command under strace, I would have seen that it failed.
The snapshot bisection + jojelino's debugging did point at the reason
for the problem, though. I changed the way dup() worked slightly back
in May and that tickled a nascent problem in fhandler_registry::dup.
Thanks to everyone who contributed debugging details.
