Bash Version: 4.3
Patch Level: 18
Release Status: release

        bash closes fd #63 for process subsitution when executing script
        without shebang line.
        I don't see why this might be a feature -- so I assume it's a bug;)

        this happens with bash-4.2.25(1) from Ubuntu 12.04 LTS,
        and the freshly built 4.3.18(1) (just to be sure it's not
fixed in the mean time...)

        I want to run some scripts identically on both Linux and
Android with bash.
        but on android bash is installed in /system/bin/bash (vs.
/bin/bash on Linux) and I do not want
        to add some symlinks for "/system -> ." or similar, so I can't
use shebang to explicitly start bash...

        so far this seems to be the only bash feature which breaks
when using "#" instead of "#!/bin/bash"


cat > works.sh <<'EOF'
ls -l /dev/fd/
cat $1

cat > breaks.sh <<'EOF'
ls -l /dev/fd/
cat $1

chmod +x works.sh breaks.sh

./works.sh  <( echo test works  )
./breaks.sh <( echo test breaks )

thanks for a fix (and not explaining why it might be a (anti-)feature;-),
