sorry, my explanation was lame (the most common cause for sigpipe is
the link being shutdown because of packet loss etc).

anyway, i have no idea what bfv cc is, but it isn't playing nice w/ the
socket that it is using to connect to the remote console port. yes, i
should probably have 'masked' this on the server side by just ignoring
sigpipe, but it is sort of lame not to even try doing the 'right' thing
