Last snapshot behaviour regarding stdout buffering has changed: when
you run interpreted, you have the normal line buffering, but when
running as a script, you have full buffering, which may cause lost
output when you quit, among other funny things.
It feel it would be more consistent to have the same behaviour
in the 2 cases (this is the case of standard unix utilities).
To solve this problem, you can also only force
no buffering at all through setvbuf, which is probably not very efficient.
Any comment about that ?
