This is a bug in busybox itself (still present in 1.5.1). It only 
appears with statically compiled busyboxes and has been reported to the 
busybox dev team. But somehow, I've got the feeling that the busybox 
team not really cares about static compilation.

In the meantime, I've implemented a local fix in udpcast-20070602 
(explicitly fflush'ing stdout just before exit)

Regards,

Alain
