    initial v1  
    33The reason why ferror() returns non-zero is that when the server process issues DosDisconnectNPipe() on its end, DosRead() on the client process aborts with ERROR_PIPE_NOT_CONNECTED which is then translated by LIBC to an ferror() condition (and to errno 57, ENOTCONN). See the updated http://svn.netlabs.org/libc/ticket/247/ for more details.

    5 Turns out that the simplest way to do so is to get rid of the DosDisconnectNPipe() call in QProcess and just issue DosClose(). In this case, client's DosRead() simply returns 0 which is translated to EOF. Surprise, this also fixes the inverted feof() value and hence the correct QFile::atEnd() behavior without the fix applied in r923.

    77So, I applied this workaround in r928. I also reverted r923 since the new fix makes it unnecessary.
