Fixing RT 66224
Message ID:

With the amount of web platforms, mod_perl, and the like, this bug on 
open3 is making more damage.

Basically, when fileno(STDOUT) != 1, open3 does not redirect the child 
process STDOUT to where it should.

Summary here:

In attach you can find a patch to HEAD@git that adds a test to this.

There is a patch in the RT that uses POSIX and fixes this misbehavior. 
But wasn't able to test it under Windows (yet).

Anybody wanting to help and explain me the next steps?

Thank you
