Hi Nelson,

Thanks for all the testing!
The misc/head* test failures are not problems with
head itself, but almost certainly with the way the system
(or maybe the shell) deals with pipelines in subshells.
Which shell were you using?

If you would rerun the split-a and csplit tests like this

  cd tests/misc && env VERBOSE=yes make TESTS='csplit split-a'

it might help understand what's causing those failures.
