I am trying to make riow and bar start up automatically when rio
starts.  Manually running the following command in a window after rio
starts works:

</dev/kbdtap riow >/dev/kbdtap |[3] bar

With just "rio -i 'window bar'" or
"rio -i 'window ''</dev/kbdtap riow >/dev/kbdtap'''",
each works fine.  But the following starts bar and blocks keyboard
input entirely:

rio -i 'window ''</dev/kbdtap riow >/dev/kbdtap |[3] bar'''

A couple other notes:
- replacing bar with e.g.  'tr a-z A-Z' causes the same issue of
  blocking keyboard input.
- putting the commands in a script and calling 'rio -i scriptfile' has
  the same effects as the commands above.

I looked at the relevant sources files, but my understanding of file
descriptors is pretty poor so I couldn't figure anything out from
