Re: diskHandleWrite: FD 32: disk write error: (32) Broken pipe

That's the second time I've seen someone asking about that same error.
I don't recall who the first one was.

For some unknown reason some handle that is used by diskHandleWrite()
is returning a fail, and errno is set to EPIPE. (It is possible EPIPE
was set in a _previous_ operation and errno was not cleared, and that
whatever caused write() to fail did not properly set errno...That's my
best guess right now).

I guess we need to know what operating system. I'll dig back through my
inbox and see if I can find the OS of the other person who asked me.

Did you read the documentation AND the FAQ?
If not, I'll probably still answer your question, but my patience will
be limited, and you take the risk of sarcasm and ridicule.
