I don't see anything that wants to use stdin in the script.  That
sort of error message usually comes from something like `vi` that
tries to get fancy.  The script has not changed much sinc 1.1.4.

All I can think of to do is to run the script with an arg of "-x"
or perhaps as `sh -x /var/dcc/libexec/cron-dccd` (or equivalent)
in the crontab file.  That will produce a lot of noise, but should give
a clue about what wants to do something like a tty ioctl on /dev/null.
