Re: [PATCH] t6500: don't run detached auto gc at the end of the test script

I wonder if you could make it a general test-lib function, like:

  run_and_wait () {
	# we read stdout from the child only for the side effect
	# of waiting until all child sub-processes exit, closing their
	# fd 9.
	does_not_matter=$("$@" 9>&1)

I'm afraid this won't work on Windows when the invoked command is git. FD inheritance between MSYS (bash) and non-MSYS programs (git) is only implemented for FDs 0,1,2. That's a deficiency of MSYS, and I don't think that was improved in MSYS2.
