Yes, I am aware of that. -- fd 255 is opened by bash itself... 0, 1 and 2 are 
for stdin, stdout and stderr.

In xterm (started with ctrl+F2) there are 4 sockets owned by kdesktop (this is 
a bug in kdesktop not in konsole)
When starting xterm from a VT there is no sockets just descriptor 0, 1, 2 and 
255 is open (to /dev/pts/X).
