gnulib-tool doesn't trap SIGPIPE before invoking that code, so you
must be worried about the case where the caller traps SIGPIPE?  That
doesn't sound like much of a real problem, but if it is, this looks to
me like a band-aid that doesn't solve things; it'd cut down the number
of bogus messages without eliminating them.

That being said, I don't see why the patch would hurt, so it's fine
with me if you install it.
