writing to a pipe by a script started via cron

You run into trouble? Your script started by cron and stdout to a pipe behaves strange? (Pipe made by 'mknod /var/pipes/mypipe p'.)
[ * * * * * myscript.sh > /var/pipes/mypipe ]
Solution: You have to read from this pipe, by a process or by hand.
[tail -f /var/pipes/mypipe]
