Strange error with cat (coreutils 4.5.2) on HP/UX

I get the message 'cat: memory exhausted' when trying to run 'cat' on
a big file across rsh to a HP/UX box.  The problem goes away when I
try to do this in an interactive shell, or if I pipe the output from
cat through dd:

Here is a summary:

  % /bin/uname -a
  Linux ravenclaw.uio.no 2.4.7-10 #1 Thu Sep 6 17:27:27 EDT 2001 i686 unknown
  % rsh snipe /usr/bin/uname -a
  HP-UX snipe B.11.00 A 9000/782 2001385808 two-user license
  % rsh snipe "cat /local/store/snipe/bash-c/V*" |tar tf - >/dev/null
  cat: memory exhausted
  % rsh snipe "cat /local/store/snipe/bash-c/V* | dd" |tar tf - >/dev/null
  4620+0 records in
  4620+0 records out

Any ideas?  This only seem to happen on HP/UX, and not on Irix,
Solaris, Tru64 UNIX or Linux.
