just my $0,03.
Apparently mapprint uses WR macro which expands to write to
STDOUT_FILENO, which explains why data buffered in FILE stdout was not
I don't know if "\n" at the end of the buffer warrants flushing the stream.
In either case, WR is used in several places and I'm not sure what is
the correct fix.
