Your seeing failures to detect the write-only status of a duped pipe.

Although it is an "older BSD" issue, it's not a stdio isssue.  Please 
see 
<http://www.xray.mpe.mpg.de/mailing-lists/perl5-porters/2000-03/msg02061.html> 
and run the C test case it contains.  If it shows S_ISFIFO failing on 
(anonymous) pipe ends, the Hurd has a kernel problem that needs 
fixing.
