I suspect this is the same problem with the detection of a broken pipe, that
is seen with GNU make.exe, Altara Quartus starting jtagserver.exe and probably
more. A test case is already in our test suite, as a todo_wine. 

An example how CreatPipe and the detection of the pipe write end being
closed used for inter-programm communication is given in
or sprankled in many ifdefs in function.c of GNU make.
I tried several times to come to a solution, but didn't see anything. My
plea for help on this list got by unanswered several times
