comment Non-blocking buffered named pipe?
Hmm, I tested this and it unfortunately does not entirely work. If the process reading the fifo stops reading for a while, pv blocks trying to write to the fifo, and because it's not multithreaded, that also blocks reading data into pv's buffer. So pv's buffer will only continue to fill while the process reading the fifo keeps reading. pv may be able to read and buffer some data, but it doesn't prevent the writer from blocking entirely.

This does not actually answer the asked question but is none-the-less useful to know

No_Symbol generated an error for me on Fedora 18: bad keysym name 'No_Symbol' in keysym list -- but using NoSymbol instead works fine
