The patch/updated version seems to work fine - there's a couple of compile 
time warnings, and when you run it using 'network' I/O you still get:

mbuffer: warning: unable to set socket buffer size: No buffer space 

But it does appear to work - network mode works, and when using another 
transport (such as 'nc' or 'ssh') as part of a pipe chain, it does 
correctly terminate when the send is finished.
