   Forgive me if this has already been suggested.  Have you looked
at it with truss under Solaris?  On my Solaris 9 system, I wrote
hello, world and trussed it (truss a.out).  Here's the (noddy)

ioctl(1, TCGETA, 0xFFBFDD1C)                    = 0
fstat64(1, 0xFFBFDC38)                          = 0
Hello world
write(1, " H e l l o   w o r l d\n", 12)        = 12

Note the write on fd 1 (i.e. stdout) and the fact that it
returns a 12 (the number of characters in Hello world\n).
Can you do this in the offending application?
