stderr should always be available for active translators. At least with an enhanced hello translator (i.e. libtrivfs) it is.

All file descriptors are closed in at least two places in libfshelp, see `grep -i std[eo] libfshelp/*'. stderr is manually re-enabled afterwards. So, it seems that active translators are only allowed to use stderr, but not stdout.

In case you remember, where did you experience that being root or not makes a difference?

By design, active translators are allowed to use stdout and stderr.

This works only when user is root, but not when you are an ordinary user.
