    SuS always allows implementations to return other errors than the ones
    listed:

    Implementations will not generate a different error number from the
    ones described here for error conditions described in this
    specification, but may generate additional errors unless explicitly
    disallowed for a particular function.

    See http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/007908799/xsh/errors.html
