That's odd, because it works for me on the exact same setup.

There was a similar bug in lazy bytestring's hGetContents a while back
which involve it waiting for a whole chunk and not returning short
reads, but from watching the strace of this code, GHC is reading
byte-by-byte (which is actually pretty dumb, but functions).

Can you compile both with:
  % ghc --make file.hs

And run them with:
  % strace -o /tmp/trace ./file

(obviously, you're running strace twice, with different binaries and
output files)

and send me the resulting traces? (They'll be quite big, so I don't
know if you want to spam that whole list with them)
