Under bash, gawk seems to have some difficulty with ends of 
pipes: e.g.,

----        --------        --------        --------        

C:\>echo foo | gawk '{print}'
foo
C:\>bash
$ echo foo | gawk '{print}'
foo
gawk: cmd. line:1: (FILENAME=- FNR=1) fatal: error reading
    input: Bad file number
$ echo $?
2
$ /cygnus/H-i386-cygwin32/bin/echo foo | gawk '{print}'
foo
gawk: cmd. line:1: (FILENAME=- FNR=1) fatal: error reading
    input: Bad file number
$ echo $?
2

----        --------        --------        --------        

This is with Win95 with FAT32.
