Most C programs don't seem to ignore SIGPIPE; in fact, the reason it exists
is to allow programs to be killed silently when their output is no longer
wanted by the next pipeline step.  Try <random-command> | more, get a page
of output, and hit 'q'; very few programs will report EPIPE ("svn log"
is the only one I know of).
