So, in short, it happens with bash.

I can't decide whether it's normal or not, but I could see different
behaviors with different shells:
- zsh: bee% . foo.txt
.: no such file or directory: foo.txt
- bash: lool at bee:~$ . foo.txt
lool at bee:~$
However, with both shells, the shell writing to the FIFO exits, unless
I use "/bin/echo" instead of the echo builtin to write to the FIFO.

You didn't explain what you wanted or what you considered a bug in the
first place, but it's certainly not the fault of gnome-terminal, so I'm
reassigning to "bash" (your shell). I suggest you clarify what part of
its behavior you consider a bug or misbehavior.
