>From the internal support squad:
Turns out the C standard explicitly says you can't have an input follow
output on a stream without doing fflush or fseek in-between, to make sure
the stdio buffer is cleared.  So this program is illegal.

They've gone and resolved it by design.

Heh. I've tossed this code to internal support. I'll give a yell if I hear
anything interesting.

Thanks for the C test case,
