Can anyone tell me what causes a Broken pipe Exception to be thrown?

My guess is that its either not a standard java class or not a BrokenPipeException. I'm guessing that you see an exception with a message of "Broken Pipe". My guess would be that piped streams are being used (PipedReader, PipedWriter, PipedInputStream, or PipedOutputStream) but not being connected first.
