So, I see that the script(1) on El Capitan (but not the previous version
of MacOS X) says:

     If script reads zero bytes from the terminal, it switches to a mode when
     it only attempts to read once a second until there is data to read.  This
     prevents script from spinning on zero-byte reads, but might cause a
     1-second delay in processing of user input.

The thing I don't understand is, where is standard input for script
being redirected?
