Thanks for the link, I didn't find it in my earlier searches.

Well, that's disappointing. So there is no technical reason for this behavior 
other than copying the behavior of ksh. BTW zsh does the right thing and in the 
following scenario:

        ls -lh /proc/self/fd {fd}>/dev/null

and it closes the file descriptor after the command has completed.
