I haven't checked properly, but I can take a guess at this...

The file read primitive in FilePlugin tries to read from stdin 1
character at a time (presumably to get around the line buffering that
is done, but I haven't gone through the history.  At one time I think
it modified the terminal settings, but that code is #if'd out).  For
all other streams it attempts to read the requested number of

StandardFileStream>>readInto:startingAt:count: assumes that
primitiveFileRead will always attempt to read count bytes, but it
actually only attempts to read 1.
