Unfortunately, Joe seems not to be able to follow that instruction.
He's left two comments in bugzilla which are not reflected in this email
thread.

I've tried this program on 2.6.25-rc3-00093-g59e1338-dirty and it does
not fail.

Specifically, my tests show:

open-stdin-readable:open("/dev/stdin", O_RDONLY) = 3
open-stdin-unreadable:open("/dev/stdin", O_RDONLY) = 3

Joe, can you try a more recent kernel?

Another thing to try would be opening /proc/self/fd/0 or /dev/pts/0
in your program and seeing whether those fail.
