What (the #@$!%) is 'tee' waiting for?

This has been bothering me for years now... 

Sometimes when I 'tee' a command, like:
./run

=============================================================== From: Garrett Gaston ------------------------------------------------------ man tee :)

=============================================================== From: William Wade ------------------------------------------------------ serve tee -type 'Earl Gray' -temp hot

=============================================================== From: Sean Brewer ------------------------------------------------------ tee will run indefinitely until it receives something. If the script put nothing in stdout, tee will just sit there.

=============================================================== From: "kitepilot@kitepilot.com" ------------------------------------------------------ Yes, I am sure that the script finished. I *MAY* be able to build a test case... Thanks! ET Dan Lyke writes:
