You are right.  ORBit is a source of broken SIGPIPE behaviour.

For now, a simple restoration of the SIGPIPE handler to a sane default
before executing would do it.

But in the long term, ORBit should be modified to not set SIGPIPE to
that value.  It should either provide a handler or should detect
*properly* when a connection dies.
