Thanks for your information, I see.  I also checked gnulib and found
there are other issues for popen/pclose.  In future, in case we want
to improve OpenPGPcard v1.0 support, we should think about these
portability issues.

Well, the fix is basically for correctness of the code.  I applied it
to all branches (STABLE-BRANCH-1-4, STABLE-BRANCH-2-0, and master).  I
know the code is not used for gpg 1.4, but it's better to have code in

IIRC, in natural language, "SunOS" usually referred version 4 or
earlier (uname returned "SunOS" on the machine of "Solaris" 2 or
later).  If the bug existed in version 5 or later, it would also exist
in other SVR4 based Operating System.

And...  I don't think version 4 had USB support.  USB 1.0 was in 1996.
