​Yes, but fortunately I think those all occur in #!/bin/csh scripts, so
that's (I *think*) legal syntax in that case.

​Yes, I agree. I think this is something that bash borrows from csh --
this is the way I used to do "2>&1" in bash many years ago, since that's
what I saw in the easiest-to-find examples via Googling something or
other. I only stopped once I started using Ubuntu and had all my scripts
start failing on it :).

Nadine said she will get to it soon and fix it.
