What am I doing wrong?

You're probably running into grep (and sort, and sed) buffering its
output.  I haven't been able to figure out a way past that.

        I did think of that...but I thought when the foreground
process closes 'input', then all of the chained utils should see 'eof', and
should then flush their output...at least that was my belief in how they
"should" be working...(sigh)...
