Maybe I should have been clearer... <Aargh/>...

[Explanation I was writing snipped.]

...It's in the bash FAQ... <URL:>
section E2.

According to that, defining ``DONT_REPORT_SIGPIPE'' in ``config-top.h''
will enable building a version which does not show the behaviour.

Is this flag set on the various distro's?

Should it be set on cygwin? (If only to prevent more stupid questions
like mine...)

It sounds like maybe it should be set. I've reset the subject to alert the bash maintainer.

cgf: Could you please add the following components to cygwin in bugzilla.

 - bash
   versions: 2.05b
 - postgresql
   versions: 7.4.5, 8.0.0, snapshot
 - curl-devel
   versions: 7.11.1

Just to write down all known pending issues, for our dear maintainers.
Something which Pierre will not be able to solve.
