Yup, this works, but is redundant if using attach/detach _default_output.
(On ActivePerl, stdio and stderr will not be synchronized anyway)
Curiously, `sh -c "WHATEVER 2>&1 > $filename"' does not redirect as expected.

I think if I understand your point correctly there is a mistake in your point.

The setting the output redirect to $filename should come before the stderr -> stdout redirection.

So for instance:

sh -c "make -fmissing.makefile >log.txt 2>&1"

This will result in a "log.txt" file containing:

make: missing.makefile: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `missing.makefile'.  Stop.

Kind regards
