OK, previously reported problem has been resolved!

It seems that

       cmd="echo blah | prog"
       atf_check .... $cmd

doesn't do what was expected.  So I changed the test script to

       cmd="prog" ; stdin="echo blah |"
       eval $stdin atf_check .... $cmd

and it seems to work much better.   :)

atf_check has a -x flag to pass the command through /bin/sh instead of
executing it with directly with exec().  That makes pipelines work.

Can you try to see if this actually does work and update the tests
accordingly for less black magic?

It does not work.  :(

In this case, I need to use

        atf_check -x -s signal:6 "echo foo | test_prog"

Even though test_prog exits with signal 6 (SIGABRT), the shell process does not (it exits normally). The test case reports

        tc-se:Fail: program did not receive a signal

BTW, it does not appear that "-s signal:name" works. I've tried ABRT, ABORT, SIGABRT, and SIGABORT and all fail with

        tc-se:atf-check: ERROR: Invalid signal name or number in -s option
