#5503 closed defect (fixed)

Don't pass negative file descriptors to dup?()

In libs/libmythui/mythsystem.cpp /dev/null is opened and then dup2'ed. If open gave -1, then the check would not be sufficient to stop giving a bogus file descriptor to dup, which is bad.

Since very bad things have to be happening for open() to return a -1 for opening /dev/null I am marking this ticket as trivial. But it is a pretty easy fix.
