Indeed, it's a bug.  I'm adding it to the TODO list for version 4.6.1.
think the only correct way to capture stderr properly and avoid "broken
pipe" errors is to stop using popen() and use fork() and exec() instead.
The code used in 4.6.0 had problems with Valgrind.

I don't think there were any changes that could have affected formatting.
Version 4.6.0 is just as bad at displaying long warnings.  It just doesn't
show "broken pipe" warnings.
