You did something wrong actually, because the old behaviour was the 
default one provided by Linux.

It's only by playing with pipes in 3.14.90 that I noticed the default 
behaviour was not useful, so I dropped it to the current one.

Note that your trick is welcome for older versions. It could be a notice 
in the wiki!
