Fwd: jobs -d &>/dev/null still produces output?

Crap, I sent this to Michael instead of the group accidentally...
Sorry Michael!

'1>' or just '>' redirects STDOUT, '2>' redirects STDERR, and '&>'
redirects both.  My test case should redirect both.  Try getting rid of the
'2' in your example and it will still give the behavior that you
described.  jobs is doing something special, and the source code just
confused me more.  :)

Could be that jobs is using STERR not just STDOUT

Try redirecting STDERR, for example

lskdjf 2&>/dev/null

Produces no output (it should say "command not found" or something
