Oh, no! What can we do? I'm pretty sure I stopped using 2>/dev/null
at some point, and for a reason.
I think the problem was that ksh on AIX barfs when encountering
2>/dev/null on a shell builtin. Ah, yes, here's the log entry:

Isn't that nice? So. Can we be sure that `ls' is never a shell
builtin, and that doing "2>/dev/null" on those commands never fails?
I think we cannot be sure. (And also, the exit status of `cd' is
sometimes queried, and that's always a shell builtin.)
Does anybody have a suggestion?
The passive voice should never be used.
