While XBoard can load other chess engines flawlessly, trying to load (as 1st or 2nd engine) Stockfish, gives the message: "xboard: Error writing to first chess program: Broken pipe".
Pressing OK, terminates the program.

Launching it from console (eg. xboard -fcp stockfish), doesn;t make much difference.
It avoids the crash, but the engine remains non-functional.

I have the latest stable version (4.9.1) from repositories.
Stockfish version, also latest stable (Stockfish 10 64 POPCNT), on Devuan ASCII (stable) x64 KDE (Debian stable based).
Also tried Stockfish repo version, with the same results.

The problem seems to be from the XBoard's side, because launching stockfish from console, seems to work flawlessly.
