I compiled the test program and it works fine.  It turns out the data

freeing the writer until much after I tried to find my data in the

    Deallocate all the resources associated to the writer

Yay for confusing APIs.

  This is standard behaviour to flush on close when doing pipe like
processing, simply to avoid the cost of sync'ing out at every single 
write. Mind you if you use an I/O function which for example send a 
packet to a network interface, your really *do not want* to get a packet
out each time you Write a new attribute to your stream. If that's what
you require, I really suggest you write your own synchronous API, because
except you nobody expects or want this !
