scripts: properly restore stdout/err/in at the end
Byt the end of the main script, the log file is being moved and compressed, and the final destination might become read-only at any time, so we consign stdout/err to oblivion. This is incorrect, as some actions after may still fail (out of space, for example). So, properly restore stdout/err, but also stdin (useless, but harmless) instead, so the user has a chance to see the error, especially since it is not logged into the log file.
