Or, maybe I should just listen to your guesses. You were right. I made
a change to the pipe code to speed up select and forgot to detect EOF
conditions. It was a pretty glaring oversight on my part. This follows
on the heels of my completely screwing up non-blocking reads on pipes so
my track record hasn't been great in this area.
The problem was easy to duplicate:
echo hello | ssh someplace cat
There were also several other problems with tty/console handling. My
attempt to merge some of the console and pty handling has proved to be
pretty tricky to get right. The console problems were tickled by strace
so they were harder than usual to track down.
Anyway, thanks for noticing the problem. It should be fixed in the
snapshot that is being generated now.
Only the snapshot > 2011-06-01 will have the fix.
