re: bin/46021 (xargs should keep still)

reading the original description i think that what's happening
is something slightly different.

xargs isn't dying because it can't *read* anymore, it's dying
because it can't *write* anymore, because eg, "head -3" exited,
and then ls gets SIGPIPE when it tries to write more.

i agree with dh - this isn't a bug.
