You don't say anything about what version of bash you're using or what OS
you're on, but I couldn't reproduce it.

I modified the script to print $$ at the beginning, so I knew which pid
to hit, and hammered it with kill -HUP pid from another terminal.  Each
loop consumed and wrote 4158 lines.

I tried it on both Mac OS X and RHEL 4 with the same results.
