Thank you.

I noticed a problem on a machine at work running Ubuntu, essentially due
to this construction in the event loop:

wmiir read /event | awk '/./ { print; fflush() } END { print "" }'

It seems Ubuntu installs 'mawk' for providing 'awk', which by default
buffers its input, so the above won't do anything. Ubuntu users will
have to install 'original-awk' and symlink/rename that to awk, or - even
worse - use some obscure '-W interactive' option from mawk in the above

Please don't flame me, I'm just the messenger...
