Re: lossage due to non-blocking stderr

Hi Frank,

Many thanks for your description of the steps to reproduce the problem
in addition to your patch to client.c to help resolve it.

I have devised a test script that lets me reproduce the problem and I
converted it into a santiy.sh test.

I am planning to commit this patch to the cvs1-11-x-branch and then
merge it into the feature branch.

The test script reproduced the problem for cvs 1.11.x on these three
hosts:

   Redhat 7.3 GNU/Linux
   Gentoo 1.4.16 GNU/Linux
   Solaris 9

I also checked using Redhat 7.3 GNU/Linux and the same script shows a
problem with cvs 1.12.9.1, so I will also be merging the change forward
into the feature branch as well.

(Note: The problem does not seem to arise on FreeBSD 4.x systems.)

Does anyone see any problems with this patch?

        Thanks,   
        -- Mark
