I don't know if this will work for you, but I can start a new terminal window,
and type 'tty' to get the name of the device, then use this device as the
/tmp/some-file in the previous command.  Then the commands are displayed
immediately.  Alternatively, you could try 'tail -f /tmp/some-file', which
has the same effect, but requires a temporary file.
