I don't think the lack of curl is an issue (one thing mentioned in the
thread), as curl works fine. We are on 7.57.0.

As far as the unintended reuse of the output file, and issues with pipes,
yes, the NonStop is very sensitive to complex use of pipes and much of the
compatibility issues we have had relate to those (usually Linux-specific
pipe assumptions). That is where I have been looking when trying to debug
this situation (not yet found anything). This could very well be directly
related.
