Issue with bash coprocess

My previous post should have been written like this:
Hi,

I am trying to make a coprocess in bash, I found an example here:
  http://doc.mdcc.cx/cgi-bin/dwww?type=file&location=/usr/share/doc/bash-doc/examples/functions/coproc.bash

When I tried that example, it sometimes hung, so to debug it (and to understand it) I made my own version. This also hangs sometimes.

I found that it is this "exec" command that hangs:

  ( "$@" $fifo.o ; rm -f $fifo.i $fifo.o ) &
  exec 3>$fifo.i 4$fifo.o ; rm -f $fifo.i $fifo.o ) &
  sleep 5
  exec 3>$fifo.i 4$fifo.i 4$fifo.o ; rm -f $fifo.i $fifo.o ) &
it does not hang, but the background subshell never ends.

To me, it seems to be a timing issue, as it (seems to) work if I put in the "sleep" command.

I have attached my script. It should give this output:
$ ./mycoproc.bash
coprocess_test_1_server: start
coprocess_test_1_client: init rc: 0
coprocess_test_1_client: put rc: 0
coprocess_test_1_client: get rc: 0
coprocess_test_1_client: REPLY: 1 + 1 = 2
coprocess_test_1_server: end
coprocess_test_1_client: term rc: 0
$

Is there an issue with my script? bash? cygwin? or me?

Cheers,
Morten
