I shouldn't compose emails at 0130, I missed John's remark about redirection. WITH-ERROR-TO-FILE doesn't redirect standard error, any more than WITH-OUTPUT-TO-FILE redirects standard output. These both cause the current stream to be temporarily changed, but standard error and standard output are still what they were before.
