Strangely the Scanner "list" works fine to the tty, but cannot be captured/processed. Is there a workaround for this?

Here's how I reproduce on Linux:
plex@plexms:~$ /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex\ Media\ Scanner --list
1: Movies
2: TV Shows
plex@plexms:~$ /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex\ Media\ Scanner --list >/tmp/x
plex@plexms:~$ more /tmp/x
plex@plexms:~$ ls -al /tmp/x
-rw-rw-r-- 1 plex plex 0 Feb 14 06:41 /tmp/x

Reproduced this issue on the following Linux PMS versions:
