At first I thought the same. And then I read this:


  It's also useless to temporarily redirect stderr when you call the
  kill command, since the successful termination of the job, the
  termination of the kill command and the message from the shell may not
  happen at the same time. And a blind sleep after the kill would be
  just a workaround.

Doesn't some permanently redirected subshell solves this race condition?
