SubjectRe: fyi, 2.0.36 read() EBADF bug (it was O_WRONLY)

Why do you think it's a bug at all? Think of an untrusted application
that is passed a read-only fd (for a file whose only name is in a
directory that the untrusted application does not have permission to
search). Would you _really_ like it to be able to gain write access?
