A Unix program which uses the network must ignore SIGPIPE or it will be
unreliable in the face of lost connections.

Even disregarding that, if you run "svn log file://blah | less" and quit
out of less, we need to close the database or we could leave it wedged.

We should not be ignoring printf errors, but SIGPIPE is not the answer.
