I did the test in kvm. I was connected there via ssh as "root".
I tested the normal user with "su - user".

It seems that in this case /dev/stdout still points to a
pseudo-terminal that is accessible only by root:

#> su - user
$> echo hello >/dev/stdout
-bash: /dev/stdout: Permission denied
$> ls -l /dev/stdout
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Dec 13 16:08 /dev/stdout -> /proc/self/fd/1
$> ls -l /proc/self/fd/1
lrwx------. 1 user users 64 Dec 16 09:27 /proc/self/fd/1 -> /dev/pts/1
$> ls -l /dev/pts/1
crw--w---- 1 root tty 136, 1 Dec 16 09:27 /dev/pts/1

I do not see this problem when I ssh to the machine as
the normal "user".


Best Regards,
Petr
