shellcommands: 3: Bad file descriptor

I'm trying to install a deb package through  shellcommands:

the apt-get install command is dying with

/var/lib/dpkg/info/nullmailer.postinst: line 31: 3: Bad file descriptor

line 31 is a debconf function which does

echo STOP >&3

above that is

exec 3>&1 1>&2

I'm completely lost, any ideas?

What's also confusing me is 

echo "$@" >&3

is run multiple times before the echo STOP with no error message.
