insert-file-contents and fifos

(insert-file-contents) appears to be unable to read from fifos in 
emacs21 - emacs20 copes just fine, but the new read_non_regular 
function in fileio.c appears not to like fifos. Is this already
known or being looked at?

I'm currently having to resort to:

   (insert (shell-command-to-string "cat ~/.sig-dyn"))

I've had a perfectly wonderful evening.  But this wasn't it.
