Sounds like a race condition on the pipe code. I backported this from
3.0 some time ago. Possible causes for the error are (a) bug in
original code, in which case it will also affect 3.1 and should
reproduce there, or (b) bug in my backport, which can probably be
found by careful comparison of pipe code in the two branches.
