I confirm that with the 20091222 snapshot the crash does not occur
anymore. However, there's still something wrong. Indeed, running the
test case in a terminal and issuing "echo foo > /tmp/pipe" from another
one, the program exits without printing the expected "foo".
Let me take the occasion for thanking you and all other developers for
the newly released 1.7.
