Neither did I.
Actually I observed that mkfifo didn't work anymore.
I mean, the named pipe wouldn't appear in the filesystem.
And after calling it, every new command in the shell just
kept being in state "DL" as reported by ps.
This prevented new processes, even logins being created
for the user which did the call.
And for all users if it was root.
Only pressing the reset button helped in that case.
Maybe that helps a bit in tracking...
