Hi again,

I updated io.c, compiled and got the same error, so I updated the 
whole src/libes/raster/ directory and I still get the same error:

    /usr/local/grass5/dev/fifo.1a: Operation not supported

Heres a ls -la of fifo.1a:
    prw-rw-rw-  1 jeshua  wheel  0 Jan 25 23:48 /usr/local/grass5/dev/fifo.1a

Is it normal to be zero bytes?
