No sorry you misunderstood me. We dont get a SIGPIPE on read.
We get a SIGPIPE on write. That would be okay if we write to a pipe
without an open read end. But we write to the "read file deskriptor"
(the wrong end of the pipe) fd[0] and this should return a EBADF or 
something similar.

Thanks i will try to figure out the relevant code.
Dont expect much its the first time i dig into hurd.
