Redirection and old version of bash

I have a script that I wrote and use successfully on FreeBSD with bash
version 4.1.9(0)-release (amd64-portbld-freebsd8.1). The script uses a
redirection "2>/dev/null" in several places. For some reason, that
does not seem to be working correctly under an old version of bash;
i.e. GNU bash, version 2.05.0(1)-release (sparc-sun-solaris2.9).

Specifically, this was occurring with rsync displaying messages of the
day, etc. This only happens under this version of Bash and apparently
only under Solaris.

I have managed to circumvent the problem; however, I was just
interested in knowing if anyone had heard of this before.
