Hi Helmut,

Can I ask what this fixes in more detail ?

Does it fix specific programs ?

For example:

mkfifo /tmp/fifo

Start two shell-windows in toswin

Shell 1:

cat >/tmp/fifo

Shell 2:

cat </tmp/fifo

Now you can type lines in Shell 1, and will see the output in Shell 2 line by line. Without the patch the output in Shell 2 appears when the writer (cat >...) exits. That's all. But I guess the other pipefes-pathches I mentioned earlier are needed for it to work at all.
