On many commerical Unix systems (which don't have /dev/fd/), Bash
falls back to using named pipes.

If your OS vendor's scripts are generating error messages at boot time,
with the version of Bash that the OS vendor shipped, then this is a bug
in those scripts.

If you replaced the version of Bash that the vendor supplied, but did
not change the scripts that may be relying upon the vendor's Bash patches
or version-specific behavior, then the ball is in your own court.
