I could reproduce this on Solaris 10 with the system-provided 5.8.4, but
everything from 5.10.1 to blead works as expected. I'm assuming that
this and other similar tickets were resolved when fork() started
autoflushing filehandles in Solaris, so I vote to close this.

Do you suggest we re-open it, then?
