#1 looks correct to me. An attempt to read a closed stream should be an
#2 looks to me like it should throw as well. One think, I'm checking
os.good BEFORE trying to write. I don't check it afterwards. Maybe that's
the issue. The reason I did this is that after reading eof - os.good()
returns false - not really what we want. But at the point where we can
check, we don't know that there isn't anything more to be read.
