I think we're looking at this in execcmd() or similar chunks.

		/* It's a builtin */
		if (forked)
		lastval = execbuiltin(args, (Builtin) hn);
		if (save[1] == -2) {
		    if (ferror(stdout)) {
			zwarn("write error: %e", errno);
		} else

so it doesn't necessarily mean there's a signal, just that there's a
broken pipe.  Maybe the fflush() is enough to trigger setting errno
again if it failed to write the first time?
