I can't reproduce this on my system.  I changed 1000 to 10000 and then ran your 
test case 10 times, and it never failed.  I tested both cygwin-3.1.4 and the 
HEAD of the topic/fifo branch (which I recently force-pushed in case you want to 
try it).

Can you run your test under strace and see if that provides a clue?
