Problem when SQL-Loader is killed if using Net8

Hi.
I have a program that uses SQL-Loader to load data into an Oracle table. This program is set up to catch a SIGPIPE signal in case the sqlldr process is terminated abnormally.

The problem I'm facing is that if a Net8 alias is specified, the program does not find out that the SQL-Loader process was killed. If no Net8 is used, the program immediately finds out.

What could be the possible problem? Could it be that when Net8 is used, a SIGPIPE is not thrown?

I'm using Oracle 8.1.7 on HP-UX 11.0.
TIA.

Regards,
Jaffar
