Hi Ben, this is normal when debugging some things in gdb. Normally that
broken pipe signal gets passed to the program, but gdb catches it first.
Next time when starting gdb, try the following before (r)unning the
handle SIGPIPE nostop
handle SIGPIPE pass

(It's certainly possible there was a bug that generated the signal, but  
not necessarily).
