 Interesting.  After I figured out you probably aren't using UTF-8
and changed LC_ALL to C after the pipe, I can confirm this, except
on a version of 2.5.3 with the multibyte patches from debian
(that is, their patches 55,60,61,63,64,65,66,67).  In en_GB.UTF-8
all versions work fine for me.

 For what it's worth (in the absence of copyright assignments,
probably not a lot), with those patches it isn't appreciably slower
in multibyte locales and gives the best results I've seen from the
testsuite (42 failures in foad1, 2 in fmbtest, 3 in yesno - instead
of 58, 2, 3 with the 2.5.3 release [ all with cs_CZ.UTF-8 ]).  Adding
the latest versions of foad1 and yesno to that fixes all the failures
in yesno, obviously, but adds an extra failure in foad1 for the new
-h -H test.  Looking at the reult, it was because debian force it to
output '(standard input)' and patch the existing foad1.sh
