I'm going to spend some time this afternoon with 7.4.1 trying to
isolate this. I'm reading STDIN with:


Which is essentially the same as:

my @array = <STDIN>;

So I'm pulling all STDIN into an array first. I'll try modifying my
function so it reads STDIN in a while loop instead. Thanks for the

What's weird is that, looking at my hook file's log output, I can see
hooks trying to hand off work to Condor. But only 3 out of 8 of them
try and Condor never seems to get the work. I'm just print'ing the
