Actually, it looks like This Can't Possibly Happen, since $(echo 1) is
over and done with by the time the pv is started; we've got the output,
closed the fd, and waited for the process to finish (by PID).  So there
is some weird lingering side effect.

Also, a substitution of the form $(<file) doesn't do it, either.  That's
probably not surprising as there's no extra process there, but it does
leave not that much code in getoutput() to be causing it.  I tried
commenting out entersubsh() to see if the terminal handling in there
maede a difference, but it didn't.  In fact, even pruning down
the behaviour in the child to simply printing something didn't
have any effect.
