On my Linux box (Ubuntu-9.04 x86 32 bits) redirection does not work
(it echoes input lines) but pipe "cat file | lua ...." works fine.
I guess that in the case of a pipe, shell forks two processes - one
for 'cat' another for Lua. Somehow, child process running Lua fools
readline into thinking that it is not connected to an interactive tty
and it stops echoing its input.
